A Li'l Bit:
A Li'l Bit was created by Jonathan McKee, creator of TheSource4Parents.com. He wanted to provide a weekly
podcast where kids could simply hear God's word presented in a real and relevant way. Nothing crazy,
nothing too hard to understand... just pure truth shared in 10 minute "easy to understand" segments. We
chose iTunes as our vehicle for communicating this truth because we see more kids carrying iPods with them
than Bibles. So we figured that this would be a good way to get the truth into the ears of a generation of
young people who are going to make an impact in this world.
Al is one of the authors who writes for our

DrugRehab.com - A Substance Abuse Guide for Parents
DrugRehab.com is an organization that provides factual information that gets through to young people, causing them to actually change their mindset about using drugs. The website is a great help for educating people to the truth about drugs and the addictions they can cause.
As a parent there is nothing more important than your child's well-being. Knowing the extent of the drug problem in our society, any parent naturally tries to protect their child from the destruction drugs can cause them physically, mentally and emotionally. Check out their Substance Abuse Guide for Parents

HomeWord has developed this web site as a resource to parents. This site is the home of the popular radio

extremely well with resources for all. Some of the highlights are their free parent newsletter, daily

I use this Focus on the Family website for film reviews, music reviews and TV reviews. The Film reviews are
from a Christian perspective and list all positive elements, spiritual content, sexual content,
violence, etc. A great site to check out before taking your family to see "American Pie."
This is an incredible resource to screen movies or videos before you see them. This detailed site reviews
and lists every influential element, from specific bad language and imitative behavior to drug and alcohol
content and scenes you'd just rather your kids or yourself not see. This isn't just a "warning label" site;
there's also a box labeled, "Topics To Talk About" on each movie description page. Don't let the "subscriber"
prompt fool you; you can look up loads of movies after you scroll to the bottom of the home page and just
click the "GO TO FREE REVEIWS" button.
