Sealed Orders: Life-to-Life Encounters by Matt Brinkley

Sealed Orders was created for parents in their pursuit to establish a successful mentoring between them and their teenager. Romans 1:11,12 says, "I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong, that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith." It is with this same passion that Life to Life was written. Ages 13-17

Screen It! was created to give parents a way to access the content of popular entertainment their kids are exposed to. It is an excellent resource for detailed information on current movies and DVDs. They offer content listing in many categories for every movie and video they review.

ClearPlay is a fancy DVD Player that can play regular DVD movies -- but without profanity, violence and nudity.  It's really quite ingenious. Clearplay creates filtering information on a movie by movie basis, and then put those "filters" into the DVD player. This way, the DVD player knows when to skip or mute while the movie is playing. You can purchase a Clearplay DVD player for about $50 at any Target Store and purchase a subscription to get weekly updates of the filtering service through their website.
