Life was much easier when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits.
Changes in technology happen rapidly and kids are usually way ahead of their parents on the newest app, social media, or website. It is hard, or even impossible, for parents to keep up! Some choose to keep their children away from all screens, and though sometimes we envy these people, this is not the route that we have chosen. The reality is that these things are here to stay, and as parents we need to prepare our children to become responsible adults who can function in this world with self-control and discernment. There is no easy answer, but we can offer some encouragement and perspective!
