In a social media-centered world, the smart phone has become a cultural rite of passage for kids. But is that rite all wrong? How can this generation of parents blaze a new trail to equip their kids to thrive in an ever-changing digital environment while steering clear of the dangers that lurk nearby?

With six kids, Kirk Cameron fully understands this dilemma. So, he went to the experts, and what he learned will enlighten, challenge, and encourage parents. And best of all: it can help strengthen your family. The result of his research can be seen in the cinema event “Kirk Cameron: CONNECT” and promises to offer real help for parenting kids in a social media world.

In an online world that creates an illusion of reality and “friends” through social media, apps and “followers,” “Kirk Cameron: CONNECT” pulls back the curtain to the benefits, dangers and boundaries that every parent, teacher, pastor or youth leader should consider while monitoring and utilizing technology in our children’s lives. As Cameron reminds parents, “The heart of the battle is really the battle of the heart.”

“God-fearing parents can find confidence and guidance when it comes to the challenges of parenting in our technology-driven world, knowing that God has fully equipped us for the sacred calling as a parent,” said Cameron. “We have resources to prepare our children as they learn their purpose and identity, and responsibly use technology to understand family, friends, God and the world around them.”

If you’re committed to raising kids who will make an impact in this world, see CONNECT and find real help for parenting kids in a social media world. For two nights only, Fathom Events, CAMFAM Studios and Provident Films present “Kirk Cameron: CONNECT” exclusively in movie theaters nationwide on Tuesday, February 27 and Thursday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m. local time (both days).
