Children these days are immersed in a world of technology. On any given day, they may encounter ten screens, from televisions to TV screens to phones to tablets to watches and toys.
Parents are torn between the guidance of professionals to limit screen time, while also trying to fulfil all of their responsibilities as parents.
Learning to incorporate digital discipleship principles into your parenting can give you guidance on those tough day and release you from the parental guilt technology can bring.
Technology has many powerful benefits in sharing the compelling story of Jesus with our children, from podcasts to videos to online, interactive meetings.
The challenge we want to address is learning how to balance the benefits of technology while avoiding its pitfalls.
Do you want to learn how to:
- Learn how your child can engage with technology in a healthy and useful way
- Feel like you’re not alone in your family’s principles for using technology
- Find creative ways to engage as a family both online and in person
