How do I help my kids process the news?

Posted on 4/23/2019 by Greg Yoder

Wow, your kids watch the news? I can’t get my 18-year-old to watch it very often. Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram are common distribution points for kids. I’ve been a journalist since 1983. EVERY journalist is biased. In times past, the goal was to present both sides. That’s not the case anymore. My suggestion is to find a news channel you trust—then only believe half of it. Question everything. Then research it for yourself. Trusted commentators like Janet Parshall on Moody Radio can help you process what you hear. Ultimately, though, encourage them to process news through a biblical worldview. Then, encourage them to pray. When you know what’s happening in the world, you can be more effective in sharing your faith.

Suggested Reading: John 15:19 Ephesians 6:12
