Our greatest challenge now is the influence of the mass media of entertainment on our children and grandchildren. The media, for good and for ill, is the primary teacher of our youth. There’s hope though – children can be taught to be media-wise, and the entertainment industry can be turned to turned toward the good, the true, and the beautiful. This featured seminar enables you to teach children to be media-wise, helps you understand the wide influence of the mass media, and shows you how to redeem the industry.
