Control Vs. Protection


This is an interesting conversation. It brings up the question of control versus protection. Are using parental controls really being controlling or is it merely protecting your child from content that you don’t want them to have free reign over?

Control: dictation, “my way or the highway”, Making up rules and regulations out of thin air with no explanation or reasoning.

Protection: having rules and guidelines and explaining why they are in place. Keeping your children out of poor situations so they aren’t tempted.

There will come a time in their life when they will have to deal with temptation. But, if we do our jobs as parents, they will have been trained in the way they should go and they’ll stick to it (that’s biblical people).

“Because I said so”… not a valid response, unless of coarse you would like your children to rebel.


Whatcha Think?

Until we meet again,
