This afternoon my son asked me to look up some pictures of something he’d learned about in history. So, off to the computer I went. I sent him and his sister from the room first to make sure there wasn’t anything inappropriate for little eyes. When I was satisfied, I called him back and we talked about the pictures.
Interesting thing about searches. Other phrases are recommended or what is popular is put at the top of the page. My heart sank when I looked up because one click could have taken me to some very dangerous waters. Thankfully, my boy can’t read yet. But, one day he will and one day the tempter will nudge his curiosity.
But that won’t happen on my watch. This mamma will grab the Sword in one hand and the Shield in the other all the while begging God to guard her son’t heart. He’s only mine for a season and has no clue to the danger – to the one seeking to destroy his soul. He has no discernment at his age, so it is up to me to protect him the best I can. Now I am off to research internet filters and in my heart I’m hitting my knees, praying that the One who made the stars and can quicken men to life, will protect my little men.
Do you have any recommendations? What internet filters have you found to be most effective?
