Sometimes I try to remember how I felt as a young child when I would hear or witness scary events. I recall feeling confused and afraid. As an adult, I meditate on the word of God. II Tim 1: For God hat not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. I do this because I know it is important to focus on God, not what I can comprehend about a situation.
While writing my article last week on addictions, I realized that I also have many that I need to learn to control. I realized one in particular is a very bad parenting habit. Starting today, I am going to be Facebook free for 21 days. My children really do get bothered by the amount of time I spend online. Being that I work online it seems like if I am home the computer is always in front of my face.
When you hear the word “addiction”, you more than likely associate it with substance abuse. In reality, addiction can come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, its many forms can over take our lives in ways we are unaware of until we’re in a desperate place. My children don’t play video games often. One of the main reasons for this is that when we did have a gaming system in our home they lived, breathed and slept it.
