The Internet is at the same time a tremendously useful, tremendously dangerous tool. It would be foolish to allow children to use a hammer, chainsaw, or lawnmower without first instructing them on how to use it and warning them of the potential dangers. Similarly, the use and dangers of the Internet should be clearly articulated to children. Neglecting such instruction would leave children unnecessarily vulnerable to the dangers of the Internet. For more information on the dangers of the Internet, and seven steps which parents can take to form habits for internet integrity, check out this free e-book from Covenant Eyes.
Pop Your Own
Here’s the way to make popcorn on your stove top: Pour 3 tablespoons of olive oil (or grapeseed oil if you prefer a more neutral taste) into a heavy, 3 quart or larger pan and place on medium high heat. Put two kernels in, and when one has popped, pour in 1/3 cup of pop corn (white or yellow) and cover pan. When corn begins to pop, shake constantly allowing steam to escape from popping kernels–otherwise popcorn will lose its crunch. Remove pan from heat immediately when popping stops or it will burn. Pour into a large bowl and season to taste.
