There are dire warnings about “device addiction” of our young children. The Barna Group has put together some thoughtful ideas based on their research.
- What is the background? “The institutions of American culture are changing, and the family is no exception. Forces like technology are influencing habits in the home and disrupting traditional norms that have shaped young people for generations.”
- What hasn’t changed? “But some things never change—like the parental responsibility for setting and communicating the values of their home and family.”
- Read the book: “In his new book, The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place, Andy Crouch explores the important role of the family not only in helping young people to navigate the demands of current technology, but also in shaping their character for the long-term. Drawing from the research Barna conducted for Andy’s book, the infographics below explore some of the key questions around the role of family in personal values and identity formation in a tech-heavy world where parents believe it’s harder than ever to raise children.”
