Screen Time Making Kids Unhappy
And it’s not just us parents who are made miserable by our offspring’s online addictions. Earlier this week the NSPCC chief executive, Peter Wanless, warned of a nation of deeply unhappy children, due to “the pressure to keep up with friends and have the perfect life online ... adding to the sadness that many young people feel on a daily basis”.

Before you accuse me of being an appalling father (I do quite enough of that myself, thanks very much), new research by the charity Action For Children finds that a staggering one in four parents struggles to control their children’s screen use. We’re all in this together, it seems, which should be of some comfort. But the charity undermines its survey, in our house at least, by adding that a mere 10% of parents find it hard to get their kids to do homework (they’re having a laugh, right?), while 18% can’t get them to go to sleep at night. ...

[URL=]]]screens of all types are stumbling blocks theater[/URL]
1. We should stand in opposition to theatre attending and movie renting because it is a criminal waste of time.
In Ephesians 5:15-16, the Scriptures exhort us to "walk circumspectly... redeeming the time, because the days are evil."

Samuel Miller, who was the pastor at First Presbyterian Church in New York City, preached a sermon on January 19, 1812, in which he denounced theatre attending. He said regarding this argument:

"I take for granted that this argument will be thought entirely destitute of force, by those children of vanity, who never consider the purpose for which they were sent into the world, or lay to heart the shortness and infinite value of time. But to the man of spiritual wisdom, who remembers that life is short; that there is much to be done; that he has never yet done, either for God or for his generation, a tenth part of what he might and ought to have performed; and that for the manner in which we spend every hour, we must speedily give an account before the judgment seat of Christ; to every one who remembers these things, the argument will carry with it irresistible force."

May the realization hit you -
spend out time with Good things.

Thanks Jim "Links-on" for adding several links to outside stories to your posts. Always good to see a New Year starting with the links working as usual.
I think no one knows what the new technology is doing to people's minds. But scientists have found that the human brain does not mature until it is 25 yrs old, which makes you wonder how we allow people under 25 to drink, drive, get married, volunteer in the Army, decide on which college to attend, which career to choose, etc.
I think I saw a news story about one state in the US making a change in their minimum age for driving or drinking (but it was only from 18 to 21).
Another news story was about the negative impact of TV watching on very young children, under 2 ages.

"new research by the charity Action For Children finds that a staggering one in four parents struggles to control their children’s screen use."

And reports are coming in that teenagers are LESS intelligent than a generation ago.

God does not bless the nation which rejects Him.

As far as kids are concerned, if this is bothering the author so much, He should pack his family off to the Falkland Islands and do subsistence living for Americans -- Alaska is calling you.

Actually perhaps if parents and kids, especially in the U.S., had more screen time this wouldn't be such big news.

What is really bad is, [URL=]]] (Heroin use surges, addicting more women and middle-class)[/URL]

Canada can't relax either I just saw a recently made show showing drug deliveries to the wealthy by their drug sellers to their homes in Vancouver, which back up this article, [URL=]]] (Vancouver: 'Drug Central' of North America)[/URL].

I think we in North America have bigger problems than use of big and small screens.
