Parents should be careful not to act impulsively or like tyrants in an effort to make these changes. Parents should not go through their teen’s bedroom with a vengeance, tearing posters off the walls and destroying music. Your children should be approached with love, humility, and without anger or arrogance.
If you have previously allowed inappropriate entertainment in your home, take the following steps:
- Pray and seek the LORD’S guidance and wisdom.
- Discuss and agree as a couple on what items should be discarded.
- If your child has purchased these items with their own money, with either your explicit or implied permission, you may, if applicable, offer to replace the inappropriate entertainment with reasonable appropriate entertainment of your child’s choice.
