Concerned parents and grandparents, you will want to know that several more options are available if you dropped Netflix because of the sexualizing movie, “Cuties.” Last time we told you about Redeem TV. They have over 1000 titles available including full-length movies, documentaries and Revelation Media’s complete “Torchlighters” series. Redeem TV is a donor-supported ministry.
Another recommendation is Christian Cinema (https://www.christiancinema.com/catalog/default.php). Their new “Giving Membership” gives members up to five free movie rentals per month. The Cinema also has many recent releases including “I Can Only Imagine,” “The Case for Christ,” and “I Still Believe,” in addition to other family programming. All that for an annual donation of $24.99.
Another platform, Yippee (https://www.yippee.tv), is geared to children and has hundreds of titles from which to choose. That includes a new season of “Veggie Tales”!! Yippee has offered a 30-day free trial to friends of Revelation Media. Count on this platform carrying only quality children’s programming.
As we stated in another article, it’s imperative that you discontinue your subscription to Netflix to let them know that what they air DOES matter to their viewers and you don’t approve of “Cuties” in particular!
OK, now for an update on the status of Governor Northam’s “BrdsNBz” Sex Text Hotline for Teens. Last week the VA Senate failed to pass a bill that would have voided the Virginia Department of Health’s contract with American Sexual Health Association (ASHA). No one really knows how ASHA got the addresses of the students to whom postcards were sent to let teens know about the sex line. Nor do they know what ASHA does with the information they collect: your child’s phone number if they should call, the content your child discusses with them and so on.
Parents, see what’s available on the (ASHA) web site (American Sexual Health Association (ASHA)) in terms of what your kids will read should they go there. Is that what you want your children to be engaged with? So, continue to guard your mailbox and intercept the postcard when it comes to your house. And keep open the lines of communication between your teen(s) and yourself. You are the one who ought to be educating your kids about such personal and delicate matters, not strangers you haven’t met!
We shall keep you updated on these two vital subjects!
