Read the Lyrics
Recently, I asked my son for his iPod so I could check out the songs he was listening to. I Googled the lyrics for the songs, and most were just fine. But I did find a couple that weren’t. I sat down with him and showed him the objectionable lyrics. While reading through the words, I think we were both a bit surprised at the coarse language, degradation of women and sexual content in the lyrics. After he deleted those songs from his iPod, we talked about not supporting these so-called artists by buying that kind of music, and about the importance of keeping those kinds of messages out of our hearts and minds.
