Raising Kids in a Flat-Screen World
While technology can add value to life and the educational process, it can also erode relationships and hinder the learning process and social development. Let's explore strategies that will help parents and educators teach children how to be relationally rich in a digital world, use screen time positively, and balance on screen/off screen time. Now is the time to equip children to live ''with'' screen time, not ''for'' screen time.
