I found an article tonight on the internet about the teen smash-hit movie “Twilight”. I encourage you read it at youthministry.com.
I was introduced to “Twilight” last year when my 16 year old son devoured all four 500+ page books in a matter of a couple of weeks. What could possibly be that interesting? Since my son is an avid reader, I didn’t think too much about it. Then, my 14 year old daughter did the same thing. Now, I started paying attention. What were these books all about? With seventeen million copies of them sold and it being translated into twenty different languages, it is something that parents of teenagers need to be in the know on. I am now in line to borrow the first book from a gal I mentor, so I can be in on what they are in on.
Please note: just because a movie or book doesn’t have sex in it, that doesn’t make it ok for our kids. Join me in being aware of what they are absorbed in. Read the book. See the movie. Check out the reviews. Talk to our kids.
