Social media tempts us to think that staying in constant contact with our kids is enough. In reality, they need deep trust, not just frequent touches.

    In his book, Josh McDowell shares many principles to help guide parents in helping their children to choose right based on God's truth and His character. He shares that it is important to guide your children through life with love and grace, re-enforcing who God is.

    I love the Scripture that is included to help encourage us as we raise our children and teen-agers so they can learn to make right choices.

    It is wonderful that this book applies to adults as well, learning these same truths to help us make the right choices also.

    A must have for parents who want their children to make right choices. The author leads through a family story where the son (and father) have made and are making wrong choices. Lots of good advice along with Scripture to help lead in making right choices. The book primarily deals with the problem of pornography but the principles used to lead in making right choices in that area can be applied to any area in teaching children to make right choices. This book is also good for adults who have made some wrong choices and need to get their lives back on track.

    When we are bombarded by porn and children are starting to see it younger and younger we are setting the stage for permissiveness. It is becoming less shocking and more the norm.

    The statics in the book were staggering and a lot of good research went into what Josh McDowell was talking about. Using information from the highly respected Barna groups report, The Porn Phenomenon: The Impact of Pornography in the Digital age we see the impact that this is having on our culture.

    With solid advice, examples, and tools as a parent I feel like I can tackle this issue when it comes into our home. I wish I could say I'll never need the advice in the book, but the reality is, I probably will. So if you are looking for a good solid book on how to handle pornography as a parent pick up your copy today. Happy Reading.

    This book is a compelling look at the "pornography epidemic" that has invaded our culture. Respected author Josh McDowell has shared conclusive evidence from a 2016 study by the Barna Group to show that children as young as eight years old have been exposed to pornography through social media and that 63% of teenagers actively choose to view it! Equally disturbing are the facts that many youth ministers and senior ministers have admitted to this practice, as well as parents! Pornography is recognized as an addiction and we must work to prevent it!

    Set Free To Choose Right allows us to see a "typical mother and father" who discover that their fourteen year old son is viewing adult web sites on his computer. Through conversation, different scenarios and suggested Bible scripture the author shows how this family can best deal with this situation.

    As the grandmother of a four year old granddaughter I find McDowell's evidence to be extremely frightening and I appreciate the advice he has offered in Set Free To Choose Right: Equipping Today's Kids To Make Right Moral Choices For Life. I recommend it for parents, grandparents and anyone else who guides or mentors young people. Our society has drastically changed its standards and we must get back to the morals set forth in God's Word!

    Ive read Josh McDowell books over the years and have never been disappointed. Hes easy to read, and lays out the things we need to know in a way that is very understandable. He uses scripture, as well as personal experiences, and probably experiences of others to teach us valuable lessons. His method of writing keeps your attention and helps you realize that you are not alone and this is not an impossible task. I think it took me a few evenings to complete the book, so not hard to read at all.

    Although I am a Grandmother, and this is not something I will use personally, I got the book since I babysit three grandchildren regularly, and also train foster and adoptive parents. Ive had the opportunity to mentor young parents at our church, as well. I definitely see the problems around us today, as our media and society is preaching a different gospel to our young people, including telling them that the church and Jesus is not relevant or necessary in their lives. How do we reach them? Social Media is already way ahead of us including pornography. Joshs information on this area will blow your mind.

    This book shows the history of how we got here, as well as giving us very basic and easy to understand ideas of how to combat Satan in this age. Lets just say he lays it on the line. It has always been a challenge to parent, but in todays world so much more. Especially the people I meet that take in children with so much baggage coming from broken homes and feeling unworthy to the core. I will definitely be (and have already) recommending this book to parents around me. Every parent needs to read it even if the kids arent teens yet. Its coming!
