Guard Your Girl Against the Online Algorithm Dark Trails

If you’ve ever glanced at the YouTube video your daughter is watching and been surprised—or even shocked—then you know that feeling in your stomach. You might ask yourself, “How did she even find that?” YouTube’s recommendations algorithm is the short answer. Those intriguing right margin options can lead down a dark rabbit trail. But the heart of the issue comes from ongoing conversations with your girl about what she’s watching… 

The New Testament’s “garbage-in, garbage-out” concept can guide your conversations with her. God cares about what we watch and hear and how it affects our hearts and our actions. 

Though you might wince at the hard conversations, teaching her how to navigate the world of internet videos through sanctified eyes is worthwhile. 

Matthew 12:34b
