There are three necessary steps in teaching discernment to children:

  • Parents must teach children a Christian worldview and inform them about other worldviews and philosophies in the context of reinforcing Christian Theism.
  • Parents must prepare children to think about and reject the subtle messages of the media.
  • Parents must teach children and model a godly disciplined lifestyle.

The church must battle the prevalent secular mindset and worldview by training students to think and live biblically.
