Media Smart

Become A Media -Wise Family!

As Moms we are the keepers of the culture. We are also the first line of defense when it comes to what influences we will let in our home. So how can we become a media wise family without barricading ourselves and our children in a closet? Here are some great resources to help your family become media smart!


A media-wise guide to learning how to make the right decisions about movies, TV and the media so that you and your family and friends can choose the good and reject the bad, and thus grow in faith, wisdom and understanding. What are your children watching? Do you know the impact of their entertainment choices on them? What is appropriate viewing at different age levels? How do children learn? This book addresses each of these issues and examines the ways different types of media present worldviews.

Sex. Graphic killings. Profanity. Adultery. Flip on the television, head for the movie theater, or open a newspaper and you can’t get away from it. How do you raise a family in a world supersaturated with media extolling toxic values that are not your own? Media critic Dr. Ted Baehr and legendary entertainer Pat Boone draw from their own extensive experiences and interviews with experts to help readers understand the power of the media and its influence on families. They also examine the ongoing threats to family values by those in the media who promote a humanistic worldview. Media consumers are challenged to understand their own worldviews, make wise choices and are given the information they need to do so. Baehr and Boone also look at the progress that has been made in family values programming in Hollywood, and offer hope for the future.
