Question 0002

What would you do if your 6-year old daughter’s favorite toy, a talking doll, started trying to convince her that she needed a new friend — the next doll in the company’s line?

First, this question is creepy.

But to answer the question, I’d regret buying the doll (assuming I was the one who bought it), and try to convince my daughter to get rid of it. I know that this might change my relationship with my daughter forever, but for me, protecting her from harm should be my topmost priority.

I don’t want this doll to instill dissatisfaction in my daughter’s young mind. I don’t want her to begin coveting the things she doesn’t have.

While she’s young, and I still have the power to teach and mold her, I’ll do my best to shield her from the dangers of this world.

 

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it. ~ Prov. 22:6 (NKJV)
