One of the most difficult topics to discuss with youth is the topic of entertainment. The reason why I think it is so hard to discuss is that many of them are aware of how entertainment has hurt them, yet many are still unwilling to change. The addiction is so strong. We know that we spend too much time on our devices yet it is so hard to stop. We know that we use them too often at dinner with family, yet our phones seem to make their way out time and time again.
One student submitted the question, “Does secular music brainwash you?” I then had the opportunity to speak to the group and address this important question. This episode this week goes over some of the points we discussed and some of the questions I asked the students.
How do you think we can better handle technology and entertainment in our culture?
