In due time, science always seems to confirm what Scripture has already said about raising kids.
Allow me to provide one benefit of setting limits as it relates to digital media.
When we train our kids in the “way they should go” science confirms that we’re actually making healthy neuron connections in their brains.
Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.”
By the same token; when we allow our kids to indulge in sordid music, video games, TV, movies or other unseemly amusements, we are again building in them strong brain connections. Only this time these brain connections help Junior acquire appetites and potential addictions for some pretty awful things.
Now enter social media into the equation, which too often only adds to the negative effect on Junior’s brain chemistry. This is why it’s so important to set proper quality and quantity digital limits with our kids.
