When the World Watches Your Teen Act Out

Welcome to the world of YouTube where nothing, unfortunately, goes unnoticed.

As I point out in the video below from a Today's Girls episode, in today’s world nothing seems to happen without being videotaped.

Cameras and video surveillances are all around us and record our every move. Sometimes it's a good thing, helping us stay safe. 

But for others, teens especially, it can lead down a dangerous and humiliating road. Take a look to see how Ambria reacts when she finds out some less-than-ideal behavior is uploaded to YouTube.

And then, keep watching as I offer some tips and insights for parents who need to navigate the YouTube world in order to proect their teens.

This is real life with today’s girls, and even when it seems like the pace of technology is faster than you can keep up with, stay encouraged. The Lord is still in control. He will help you through all of your trials.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. (John 16:33, NIV)
