What are morals, ethics and integrity and why are they important in life? We’ll take a look at some of the ethical dilemmas facing our teens and discuss ways to train our teens to be more morally centered and ethical in how they conduct themselves. Finally we’ll do some role playing and pose questions you can ask teens to help lead your discussion on morals and ethics to better illustrate their decision and the consequences associated with them.
This week we take a look at screen violence in the form of video games, television and movies. We look at the different types of violence and the effect it has on today’s youth.

Then we’ll take a look at what parents can do to help teens cope with the violence that is so prevalent in our current media and entertainment.
