Television, movies, and video games capture tons of time for many teenagers. Maybe that’s largely why they become the stuff of so much family controversy. OK, perhaps the ever-increasing gore, obscenity, and violence have something to do with that.
In any case, the world of video raises lots of questions for parents of teens.
- Do you have cable tv, satellite tv, or wifi in your home? Have you installed any parental controls on this?
- Does your teen have a TV, video recorder, video game console, DVD player, or similar device in his or her own bedroom?
- How about in a secluded spot in your home?
- Or a personal device with these capabilities?
- Is he or she allowed to use this in isolation or only under supervision?
- Do you know what programs, applications, or access his or her devices contain?
- Have you ever restricted the use of such devices for disciplinary purposes?
- What would you do (or what did you do), if you discovered activity or content that you found offensive, dangerous, or otherwise troublesome?
