Most of what parents should be aware of is covered in the short video above. Netflix streams movies, which of course means there are R and NC17 rated movies. Even if parents don’t set up a separate profile for a child, it’s critical to at least enable a pin number for movies over a certain rating. You can only do this through the Administrator’s account (the one paying for the service), by following the instructions in the above video.
With parental controls set, Netflix is fine, but without them, inappropriate videos are everywhere.
At Protect Young Eyes, we are on the verge of releasing a streaming curriculum that teaches media savvy kids and their families how to honor God with technology. It’s called Virtue in Media, and it will include videos for schools, church youth groups, and parents to use with kids about relevant digital topics (pornography, predators, bullies, image, etc.).
