Homeschool Option: Family Screen Time
As parents of faith are spending school time with their kids, many are discovering their kids are exposed to a lot of sinful ideas as though they are normal, both at school and in various media. Now, all that is funneled through the screens into the home. How can a faithful family promote conversations about our Catholic faith and confront these hidden sins that are so normal they may not seem like sins to many?
One simple way is to institute family screen time as the only screen time. Now, as a family, the weird teaching that sex outside marriage is normal and good, or that life begins at (insert random time after when it actually begins, conception, here), or that there are more than two genders, and we get to choose which of thousands we are, can be confronted, when TV characters are having their “coming of age” revelations about their non-binary gender identity can be talked about, or whatever other form the theology arises. Theology is everywhere!
And, one of the beautiful things about homeschooling is our children challenge us to know our faith better so we can teach it better. After all, we are our children's primary teachers. May God startle you with joy!
