MFP161: Can Kids use Technology with Virtue?

Parenting kids in a tech age; Teaching kids virtue in an age of tech; Is it possible to use tech with virtue?

 

   “It is your responsibility to train your child in virtue and slowly move from protecting their innocence to building Christian maturity.  This is true for many areas of life, including use of technology” – Mike and Alicia Hernon

 

We have talked about the harm that the overuse of screens can do to kids and especially teens, but in this podcast we give parents some ways that they can be proactive in this world of Big Tech.  Screens are here to stay, so parents need to take them on as another area in which they need to train their children in virtue.  Do not lose heart!  It is possible to have virtuous kids who are on social media, play video games, and interact with others online.  Listen in as we show you how.
