CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
We must be diligent in the spiritual warfare that wages on every day, especially as it relates to our children and online media. This is not something to be trifled with. Our children’s innocence is not something to be laid on the line in exchange for our own personal convenience.
The Common Sense Census: Media Use by Kids Age Zero to Eight – https://www.commonsensemedia.org/sites/default/files/research/report/2020_zero_to_eight_census_final_web.pdf
– Some Stats:
- According to the census report, kids watch an average of 39 minutes a day of online videos, more than double the amount of time devoted to online videos in 2017, when the survey was last conducted. 34% of children 8 and under watch online videos every day. 46% of 2-to-4 year olds and 67% of 5-to-8 year olds have their own mobile device (tablet or smart phone)
- When looking at the sample of online videos viewed on YouTube, 95% of early childhood videos included some for of advertising, and one in five videos viewed by children 8 and under contained ads that were not age-appropriate. Inappropriate ads ranged from violent video games, lingerie, alcohol, and politics. Even in age-appropriate videos, inappropriate ads appeared 9% – 22% of the time.
- The study also found that young children are primarily watching entertainment, not education content. Almost a quarter of videos were classified as educational, thought most only touched on basic educational concepts, or filled the videos with toys or vicarious experiences. Only about 4% of videos had a high educational value, meaning they taught topics at a developmentally appropriate level and went beyond simple or surface concepts. Roughly three-quarters of videos children watched have weak or no educational value.
- The amount of content is almost unfathomable, and YouTube isn’t monitoring it because there’s no way that they could be. 500 hours of content is uploaded every minute of every day.
- The risk/reward of giving a young child access to YouTube is way out of whack
1 Peter 5:8 – Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Phillipians 4:8 – Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
