Ted Bundy’s take on porn

Posted on: 05/23/19 10:16 AM | by Jonathan McKee

In the last two weeks I watched the Netflix documentary about serial killer Ted Bundy. . .fascinating and truly frightening.

As I was watching it I wondered if they’d mention the Dr. James Dobson interview because Dobson was actually the last person to interview Bundy before his execution. Sure enough… they offered a little blip at the end of the documentary.

Bundy was very open about the influence pornography had in his life Continue reading “Ted Bundy’s take on porn” »

Helping Teens Become Wise with Their Screens

Posted on: 05/15/19 3:22 AM | by Jonathan McKee

How should parents, mentors, teachers and youth workers respond to a generation that can’t seem to pry their eyes from their screens? The answer is conversations… and here is a YouTube video where I present four necessary conversations we need to have with today’s young people!

This is a talk I gave at Summit Ministries’ Basecamp event in Colorado Springs last week… and they just posted my talk to YouTube! The topic was helping teens become wise with their screens… only 30 minutes and change. Enjoy! (He introduces me at 4 minutes and 30 seconds into the video.)

A fun conversation on Moody Radio

Posted on: 05/6/19 3:00 AM | by Jonathan McKee

Today (Monday, May 6th) I am really looking forward to the conversation with my friend Chris Brooks live on Moody radio. We’re talking about how we can actually help “distracted” young guys today.

Over the last several years I’ve had the opportunity to be the guest on Chris’ show, “Equipped with Chris Brooks” and it’s always one of my favorite interactions (shhhhhh…. don’t tell anyone!)

Avengers: Endgame on Opening Night

Posted on: 04/26/19 2:01 PM | by Jonathan McKee

Last night Lori and I went to see the new Avengers film on opening night (It’s weird how now we can see these “openings” on Thursday as early as 6PM in California… because I guess it’s Friday somewhere).

Loved it! In fact, it’s by far my favorite Avengers film yet.

Let me start by saying I wasn’t a big fan of the previous film, Avengers: Infinity War for the same reason everyone else didn’t like it… really depressing! But Lori hadn’t see it yet, so Wednesday night we sat down to watch it together to prepare for Avengers: Endgame Thursday (yeah, we’re kind of nerds).

Kids spending real money on virtual goods

Posted on: 04/8/19 4:11 PM | by Jonathan McKee

“Mom, can I have $20?”

“Why? Do you want to go hang out with your friends?”

“Actually, I want to buy the ‘Cuddle Team Leader’ outfit for my character in Fortnite!”

Sound bizarre? Welcome to the monetary world of digital natives. And our TheSource4Parents.com game reviewer Naomi Norbez gives us a nice peek into the world of game-purchases in this special guest post (note: Noami has another helpful article on our parents’ page right now as well).
