SPOTLIGHT: Culture Proofing Your Kids

Written by David E. Smith

In this episode of Spotlight, Self Evident’s Jenna Smith interviews Will and Meeke Addison. This power couple hosts a a daily radio/podcast program focused on Marriage, Family and the Church titled “Airing the Addisons” on American Family Radio.

Will and Meeke were keynote speakers at this year’s Illinois Christian Home Educators conference, where they spoke on the vital importance of discipling your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and the opportunities homeschooling provides: “We see [homeschooling] as an opportunity to pour in our children and make them culture proof.” Will states.

Culture proof is a term coined by the Addisons to describe what parents should want in their children. The culture creeps into homes and families with the intention of penetrating the hearts of the children, be it through social media, music, movies or books. “What is required of [parents] is that we make our kids impervious to the culture. We want our kids to be out in the culture, but we do not want a godless culture getting into them.”
