Lately, we’ve been struggling with guiding our children in managing technology in their lives. It seems like teenagers today can’t relate to each other except on their smartphones over text or SnapChat.
What’s a parent to do? I know some families choose to chuck it all – no internet, no email, no phone, no TV. And honestly, that sounds like a good decision most days. My only concern is that I want my kids to learn to manage their own lives wisely. I don’t want to restrict everything and then just turn them loose at 18 years old. I want to gradually loosen the reigns as they get older so they have increasing responsibility for their decisions.
How do you handle technology in your family?
