Helping Our Kids Manage Technology Well (Part 1)

Dr. Gary Chapman & Arlene Pellicane

Screen time is a battle all parents face. While technology is a great tool, it can also be a distraction. And at its worst, it can derail a child’s growth and development as well as family relationships. But we live in a tech-driven world, and we need to learn to how to balance appropriate tech use with healthy boundaries.

On this two-day Focus on the Family broadcast, Dr. Gary Chapman and Arlene Pellicane reveal how technology is changing our kids—impacting the brain, relationships, safety, and emotional health. You’ll discover five social skills every child needs to be successful in life—affection, anger management, appreciation, apology and attention. They offer solid insight about technology and digital devices along with some practical tools for connecting with your children in the midst of their tech-driven world.

Focus on the Family Vision

To cooperate with the Holy Spirit in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by nurturing and defending the God-ordained institution of the family and promoting biblical truths worldwide.

Ultimately, we believe that the purpose of life is to know and glorify God through an authentic relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. This purpose is lived out first within our own families then extended, in love, to an increasingly broken world that desperately needs Him.Through our radio broadcasts, websites, simulcasts, conferences, interactive forums, magazines, books, counseling and much more, Focus on the Family equips parents, children and spouses to thrive in an ever-changing, ever-more-complicated world.
