The Boy Mom Podcast with Monica Swanson and Friends

Aug 17, 2020

In light of so many difficult and controversial news stories in 2020, I think you'll find this episode incredibly encouraging.  Nick Eicher and Brian Basham join me to talk about helping our tweens and teens navigate the news today. We cover news literacy, critical thinking, and Biblical discernment -- and how the brand new World Watch 10-minute Daily News Program can help!  Whether you homeschool or not, the World Watch daily video segments will teach your kids (and the whole family) about world news and current events, as well as stories about science, technology, culture, art, the economy, and more.

The news can be an educational tool, and a great springboard for conversations. However, most of the news we find on television is biased and confusing.  World Watch's 10 minute videos are a great alternative -- written by Christian journalists, each show is informative, engaging and thought-provoking.  I'm super excited about what they're doing.  At the end of this episode I share 5 tips for talking to your teens about the news, wherever you get your news!  I love this positive and encouraging approach to what can otherwise be a challenging topic...especially in today's world!  

Thank you, World Watch, for sponsoring this episode and sharing your wisdom.  Find out more about World Watch at: Listen to the episode and get links to everything we talk about in show notes:
