Review: I recently picked up the How to Use Your Head to Guard Your Heart: A 3(D) Guide to Making Responsible Media Choices by Walt Mueller, founder of the Center for Parent & Youth Understanding. It is a sweet little resource that will empower you to help your students in the high-speed, ever-changing world of media. Using what they call a 3(D) approach (Discover, Discern, Decide), it is a practical tool that parents, youth workers, teachers, and other caring adults can use to engage students in discussion about media. Rather than just telling kids they can or cannot watch or listen to or play something, this tool encourages discussion about how to make wise choices in terms of what we should and shouldn’t be embracing from the media. Only 12 pages long and small in size, it is a great little booklet to keep handy next to your computer or television. Dirt cheap at only about $1.50 each, youth pastors would do well to purchase them and give them to parents … Perhaps as a little Christmas gift. (Hint! Hint!) You look great to parents. Parents will get involved in their kids lives in a deeper way. What could be better than that?
