Friend and reader Shawn forwarded this article to me. FoxNews.com published an article by Fr. Johnathan Morris on “How to Raise Your Children to be Model Adults”. Now before you write off the article because it’s by a priest, I’ll put out there that I agree with everything he recommends.
Know the media content your children are ingesting and do your best to eliminate the negative elements without forcing your children into the dark ages. An open Internet connection or TV in their bedrooms is never a good idea. An unregulated cell phone is also dangerous.
He provides basic, common sense information for raising good kids, but not all of us listen to our common sense. Often, we need to hear someone else say it before it sounds right in our own ears.
