Then I thought, "Almost as soon as this kid came out of the womb, he began to see Disney movies: Monster, Inc., Cars, Bugs Life, 101 Dalmatians, and the list goes on. Granted, none of those have Mickey in them, but somewhere along the way (probably from his older siblings) he picked that up.
What if we were able to instill who Jesus is this early? What if by the time they reach 2 years of age, they can see pictures of Jesus, Joseph, Mary, etc. and say "That's ____________." As more research comes out, the ages of Birth - 3, it is becoming more widely accepted that those are the ages of KEY influence. These early years of life are so crucial in a child's personal AND SPIRITUAL development! Jesus and other Bible Stories should be posted every where we go so that our kids barley know of any thing else.
Of course, this is extremely hard to do given the images coming into our homes every day. If your kids spend any time watching television, or being around you while YOUR watching, chances are they have already been exposed to more than children growing up even 25 years ago! Why not take some radical steps to decrease or eliminate the insane barrage of images that take our focus off of Jesus?
Perhaps I am way out in left field, but I always try and remember that we are in a spiritual battle for the lives of our kids. If kids are highly influential in their early years, then you can be sure the enemy knows this and will target them - just like we should! Parents and Church, it's time to unite to make Jesus so famous, they will be putting his picture on our kid's diapers.
