By Editors on Sep 25, 2016 7:00:00 AM

It is often said that kids’ minds are like sponges, soaking up everything they see. Well, that old adage has been proven true in a study published by Psychological Science this month. The study proved that it is not actually adult instruction that informs a child’s perception of what is “normal” and what is not. Rather, children are promiscuous normativists, a term the study spelled out as: self-inferring what normal is.

Woodlawn's Real Tony Nathan Speaks on Race & Giving It All to God

By Justina Miller on Jul 30, 2016 9:00:13 AM

It wasn’t until 1971 that Birmingham’s Woodlawn High School finally desegregated. While many students, teachers and faculty did not welcome the transition, the football team was the first to reconcile their differences. This short interview from CBN’s The 700 Club features Tony Nathan or “Touchdown Tony,” who was only a freshman when Woodlawn desegregated. Nathan was on the football team and was not only instrumental in the team’s success on the field, but also one of the first to practice peace in an environment inundated with racism. By their example, the Woodlawn football team generated a change in their school and eventually in the whole city of Birmingham. These incredible events inspired the movie, “Woodlawn,” starring Caleb Castille, Sean Astin, and Nic Bishop.

How do we stop this binge watching trend before it starts in our families, or if it’s already begun, how do we escape the vortex of incalculable hours of TV streaming into our homes?
