Importance of Controlling what our Children Watch

As Christians we bring up our children to have certain ethical and moral standards – and we teach them what is right and wrong in the eyes of God. A huge number of movies released these days do not confirm to the same moral standards as most Christians so we need to be cautious of what movies we show our children.

Even movies aimed at children these days often contain subtle sex references, drug use and pornography. Children are very impressionable and these are not things we want our children to be subjected to, so it is important to control what our children watch.

A Christmas Carol

There are two versions of this popular family friendly movie – the original 1951 version and the new animated version. Both however are fantastic movies to watch around Christmas time.

The original story was written by Charles Dickens and has become one of the best-loved Christmas stories of all time. The story is about a man named Ebenezer Scrooge who self-confessedly hates Christmas. Throughout the movie he is taught the true meaning of Christmas by ghosts who show him his past, present and future. He then realizes that he has to change his ways and becomes a kind man who loves the spirit of giving and Christmas.

The animated version is a beautiful reenactment of the original and is even more appealing to children who love the bright colors and fun animations that have made it a family favorite.
