Ungodly worldviews confront godly parents whose purpose it is to give their children a secure childhood.

Outside the home these "influencers" seem bent on unsettling and robbing all children, not only Believers' children, of their childhood.

The early Believers took the leading of the word of Christ and lived according to the Apostles' Kingdom teachings which recogise what "... is in the world -

the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," 1 John 2'16.

Nevertheless, the greatest influencers of children are their Parents, even though outside influencers present major challenges to the Believers' desire to raise resilient children.

During the unsettled personal environment of adolescence, children encounter influencers among their peers who influence their behaviour, preferences and choices to a greater or lesser degree.

In addition, commercial influencers intentionally focus on advertising at children. They engage entertainers, "stars" and "celebrities" in their efforts to influence children in what they see, read and hear.

As Believers live through the years and love their children from their first day:

Always remember that

"He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world,"

1 John 4'4.
