‘Luckiest man alive’ who lives with TWO girlfriends is having a baby with one… and the trio still share a super king size bed. Anything goes nowadays.
What’s driving our young people to be soooooo violent? Renowned psychologist Dr. Bridget Melson says the typical media diet of a teen or tweenager is exposed to a lot of violent stimulation. As they get older, they need more stimulation, so she predicts it’s going to get worse.
We are breeding sociopaths. They are closed off emotionally. Their brains are not growing the way they are supposed to be. Social media gives them fake worlds to live in and they are desensitizing them to the real world. Their brain is actually atrophying from too much social media and video games.
Cell phones are the almighty pacifier to keep the kids occupied.
Giving a kid a smart phone prior to age 15 is child abuse. They can’t handle it.
Parents are creating these monsters. Warning signs that your child has a problem? Depression. Obsession with movies, games, phones. Teenagers have not had enough life experience to experience depression. Withdrawn. Rage outbursts. If they think they can’t live without it, it’s a problem.
Parents should know EVERY app, EVERYthing else going on on that phone. Every parent needs to install the PhoneSheriff app on their child’s phone.
Parents need to be PRESENT for their children.
If we throw God’s morality out, who’s morality will we use?
