The Christian Media Ministry has developed a guide to children viewing the Lord of the Rings and other controversial movies that contain violence The Ministry describes LOTR as relatively clean but the sword fighting may be too strong for children However his Christian references in the novels prove to be a good adventure for children Their notions of the LOTR references can be implemented in other media types too The Ministry believes that the media violence problem is a great one and needs to be dealt with accordingly by parents By the time a child is 17 years old they would have spent 40000 hours watching movies and other types of media and only 11000 hours in school 2000 hours with their parents 800 hours in church An average of 2353 hours of media is consumed by children each year and only 165 of those hours would have been representative of a strong Christian worldview In 2001 the Surgeon General of the United States agreed with top medical groups that violence in the mass media is contributing to increasing violent behavior among children The Ministry offers a solution to this problem in the form of four pillars These are 1Understand the negative influences of the entertainment media 2Understand your childs cognitive or psychological development 3Understand the grammar of the entertainment media or how the media works 4Understand your moral spiritual values and teach them to your children The Ministry sums up their view by stating that the best way to develop wisdom is to choose the good not just reject the bad
