On this podcast:
Dr. Bill on ‘gun-free military bases’
On this show, Dr. Bill discussed the tragic incident in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He looked in particular at the unfortunate fact that many small military installations are considered “gun-free zones,” and thus the men and women serving at these locations are left unable to protect themselves from attacks like the one in Chattanooga. Dr. Bill called for listeners to pray that the military would recognize the need for all of its personnel to be able to defend themselves.
Developing healthy technology habits with your teen
If Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, or YikYak seem like gobbledygook, it may be time to educate yourself on the world of technology your kids are growing up in.
Technology is one of the benefits of living in today’s world. It is a non-negotiable for success in our educational, vocational, and social cultures. Yet, with all the advantages there are inherent dangers, deceptions, and abuses. Teens often look to their digital tools to make them happy, when you set boundaries or take them away they feel frustrated and incomplete. Unhealthy habits formed in this stage of life easily carry over into adulthood and addictions to technology make other addictions more likely.
