    Raising Godly Kids in a Social Media Crazed Culture, Advice From Kirk Cameron

    Kirk Cameron, a well-known Christian actor and producer, recently shared three things that parents with children should do to help them steer their identity away from social media, and towards Christ.

    “I would tell parents to be the kind of confident, wholehearted, full of faith Christian that you want your children to become,” Cameron told The Christian Post at the carpet premiere of the movie ‘Overcomer.’

    “Let them see an example in you as a mom or dad,” he encouraged.

    “Second, I would advise staying in a relationship with them,” Cameron added. “So many kids that go astray, you look at their relationship with their parents and it’s usually broken. It’s not healthy and strong.”

    Cameron stressed the importance of making God the center of your home and pointing all things back to him.

    “Number three, make the word of God the center of your home and what you teach them,” Cameron, who has six children, said. “Our generation is struggling with this issue of identity. We need to ask ourselves, ‘if this was taken away from me, would I question who I am? Do I define myself by my looks, race, gender, talents or resources? And ultimately, find our sense of identity in who God says we are.”

    ‘Overcomer’ is based around the theme of identity, telling the story of a high school basketball coach who struggles to find purpose after he loses the people that defined his world. The film details an economic crash that crushes the stability of a small-town and alters the lives of many within.

    “I appreciate ‘Overcomer’ because it’s based out of truths in the book of Ephesians,” Cameron told the Christian Post. “The Gospel is central in the movie. It talks about a relevant issue that kids need to think deeply about.”

    According to Cameron, the film provides a good conversation starter for parents, creating an option for dialogue about the importance of identity.

    “You hear people say all the time, ‘I went to California to find myself; I’m really struggling with my identity,” he explained. “That’s why I love this movie because it’ll open up a conversation between us as parents with our children to talk about what it is that truly defines us.”

    “It’s a great conversation starter about a really important subject for everybody,” he said. We all struggle with finding who we are. Especially with social media being such a central part of our lives, we’re forming our identity and self-worth on the opinions of millions of people who don’t even know us, and our values from people who don’t have a biblical worldview.”

    Alex Kendrick, known for his performances in ‘War Room,’ ‘Courageous,’ and ‘Fire Proof’ stars alongside Bible teacher and author Priscilla Shirer in ‘Overcomer.’

    “Overcomer” released in theaters nationwide on Aug. 23. You can find more information about the film here!
