I am extremely concerned about screen use in schools but that’s not the only thing in schools to worry about lol It’s becoming a definite other reason why we homeschool tho.
When friends come over, their phns go in their coat pockets. I tell them if they want to play on their phones, they can come back when they want to play with my kids. No tablets are allowed over. I only allow the phones in the house so parents can helicopter their kids.
My house is fun, we even do work together with the friends, gasp. So kids want to come over.
Common sense says, keep EDs away from kids. My kids do use my laptop for writing stories, once they’ve gotten good cursive handwriting skills. And occasional game time. But never to keep them busy, esp in offices, etc. They need to know how to be quiet even if “bored”. Reading’s always a good cure for that lol
Satan has in fact exchanged an adoration of God for man through the media. This is why children nowadays look up to actors, artists, heroes or characters mainly found in media. What child today would not want to be as Superman, Spiderman or any other Superhero, who is depicted in the media as invincible, adored, and beloved by all? Why are both grownups and children nowadays so prideful and violent, unloving, disobedient, lustful and arrogant, etc., if not because we through media have been conditioned to act and behave in this way? With the devil as an example through his debauched actors and animated characters, it will always end badly.
