Distractions can keep our children from loving and following God with all their hearts. The first type includes things that are good but that can become idols.  For example, when our kids are more focused on their peer-group or favorite activities than on God, it is easy to let these “good things” become number one in their life and take the place of God. 
The second type of distractions include negative influences that can lead our children into sin or believing things contrary to God’s truth.  If our children are around these type of influences, the enemy can use them to pull our kids away from their growing relationship with Christ.
