What Screen Time is Doing To Our Kids… by Walt Mueller
Last night I had the opportunity to speak about kids and technology (a short segment of our “Born 2b Wired” seminar) to parents and staff at a local school district. They were holding an Internet Safety Expo that was designed to pass on all kinds of resources to parents. . . who happen to be the most important people in a child’s life (something we seem to have forgotten in our culture). We talked about the need to set boundaries for our kids, not only to protect them from others (predators, hackers, bullies, etc.), but to protect them from themselves (impulsivity, bad decisions, lack of wisdom, etc.). Sadly, we all know children, teens, and adults whose online behavior has been costly to themselves and to others.
