In a recent doctors visit, the check in nurse told me that she had previously worked as a Dolphin tour guide for a dolphin cruise boat company. I was impressed that she actually knew a lot about dolphins, so I asked specific questions about the dolphin. One question was one that we all wonder about, and that is: “is it true that if dolphins are around, sharks will not come near” She not only confirmed that for me but also said that the dolphin knows where to attack, which is in the gills. Here’s the very interesting info.. not only do they know where and how to hit the shark, but when the shark is disabled and begins to sink to the bottom, the adult sharks will train their young where and how to hit the shark, encouraging them to do it as that shark is dying and sinks to the bottom.
We as parents/grandparents/uncles and aunts, SHOULD be training our children what and how to do things properly. According to Proverbs 22:6, the bible says “train up a child in the way they should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it”. We know this, but do we really do it?
In a recent letter to “Focus on the Family” a dad asked when it might be safe to give his son a cell phone, and the response was ”When you are ready to KNOW that he’s going to access Pornography”. Dads..train up your sons in the way they should go and they’ll never depart from it. Also know that often times I’ll hear that “dad hid his porn behind the tool box in the garage, so when I found it, I just thought that if dad looks at it, so can I”
Another fact that that nurse shared with me is that the dolphins has a “sonar” built into their mellons, (their head, for those of you from Rio Linda) that can detect a fetus in a mother’s womb, and they behave differently whenever they get around a pregnant mom. If we as dads know something is dangerous for our family, we’ve must protect them from it.
In our group settings, our members are required to get these monitors on ALL of their devices, cell phones, Ipads, PCs, and desktops. We are using two monitoring services, one being “Covenant Eyes” the other is “Ever Accountable” There are several good monitoring programs available, but these services don’t just block the garbage, but monitor EVERYTHING that is searched while using, sending a weekly report to several persons that you want have hold you accountable. They will know where you’ve been and what you’ve been looking at. If a report is questionable, the brother will be confronted.
Dads, grandads, uncles should certainly discard all old printed material, clean up your own computers, and put protection on all of your young guys devices. Teach them how to HIT Satan in the gills to disable him!
