Dr. Ted Baehr, publisher of MOVIEGUIDE® and author of THE MEDIA-WISE FAMILY, gave the keynote speech this week at the International Christian Educators Conference in Suwon, South Korea near Seoul.
Over 880 Christian teachers from all over the world heard Dr. Baehr’s message on how to train children and teenagers to be media-wise consumers, to make good decisions in their media choices.
Dr. Baehr also taught four classes on media wisdom at the conference.
“The mass media creates the culture that influences the hearts and minds of children and teenagers,” Dr. Baehr said. “That’s why it’s so important for parents and teachers to train their children and students to be media wise, to be careful, informed consumers.”
Dr. Baehr is author of THE CULTURE-WISE FAMILY and THE MEDIA-WISE FAMILY and founder of MOVIEGUIDE®: The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment and the Christian Film & Television Commission® (CFTVC).
CFTVC and MOVIEGUIDE® are an international non-profit ministry dedicated to “redeeming the values of the entertainment industry by influencing industry executives and by informing and equipping the public about the influence of the entertainment media.”
