Thanks to Technology, our world has changed. If you’ve ever felt frustrated, confused, or angry about what technology is doing to your kids, you aren’t alone. With the youngest generations, technology is no longer a tool, it's an appendage. Technology is where your kids spend their free time, build their social status, create personas, and create achievement. Spending this much time with technology is changing them, and we need to be ready with a response. In this session on how to help your students develop a healthy relationship with technology we will discuss:
- Why technology and social media in particular has become so powerful
- The effect technology is having on us, our culture, and on our kids
- Scientific approaches to parenting our kids through this issue
- Biblical values for “the good life” and how we can help our kids find it
