How Do We Parent High-Tech Children?
Technology continues to speedily change, improve, and advance. Computers get smaller and faster, texting replaces phone conversations, and social networking websites and YouTube reign supreme. In an instant, people across the world can be connected to each other. It is a fascinating but potentially dangerous time for our children. Through it all, our parental desire remains the same: To protect our children from harm.
But how do we do that? Parenting the Facebook generation is a daunting task, and the stakes of failure are way too high. So, like all people of faith, I reach to the Lord for help. With His guidance (and my own experience), I’ve come up with some helpful tips (marrying practicality with faith) to parent our children in this high tech age.
