As a parent, I'm always on the look out for hidden dangers that I should shield my son from. Things that would or could damage his sense of self or purpose. The media is one outlet I've been very careful with, as my son has matured.
KLOVE is usually on where we're in the car. When it comes to movies and television, we're very selective in what we watch. That being said we've not put him in a bubble. He's aware of the good and bad things that happen in this world, but we've just done what we can to keep his innocence around as long as possible.
Most of the kids in today's world are growing up too fast, and I want better for my child.
Have I been on my soapbox enough here? All this is leading to a point, I promise.
I recently became aware of Roma Downey's newest project, 'Little Angels' and was so happy to see someone of her caliber promote such a worthy series. You may remember Ms. Downey from her work as 'Monica' on Touched by an Angel, a popular television series.
Little Angels is an animated DVD series that promotes Biblical truths as well as educational applications. Your pre-school aged children will not only learn the basic building blocks of letters, numbers, & animals, but they will get to delve into exciting Bible stories in the process.
The premise is about 8 little angels, which are painted on a ceiling, coming to life to watch over two children, Alex and Zoe. They not only watch over Alex and Zoe but they bring the children a whole new view and understanding of what goes on around them and how God fits into it.
The angels teach Alex and Zoe to be responsible, have self control, and encourage good behavior. 'Little Angels' brings imagination, music, humor and art into the equation to make learning fun.
My son, who's now 8, rolled his eyes when he saw what I was watching (he's too big for baby stuff). However he kept sneaking around the corner to watch. These little angels and their humor sucked him into their world, and before I knew it he was also laughing at their jokes. As I turned to look over my shoulder, he'd pretend to not watch and turn away. I counted ... my son came in 5 times to sneak a peek at this DVD. You know it has to be good if it can captivate such a big kid!
How exciting that there is something available that will be expanding our children's spiritual knowledge as well as their educational base... And how refreshing that this will be stimulating their minds with Bible foundations. I only wish I had access to this series for my child a few years ago. I can only imagine the conversations that will come from your child watching 'Little Angels'. It's not just a great learning tool, but a wonderful communication tool for you as a parent.
Roma Downey does a wonderful job producing this series. She's bringing the message of God's love to our children in a creative and captivating way. I highly encourage you to visit her website for the DVD series.
It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...
