Kids and Media

  • One poll of 14 to 24 year olds show that Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter increased feelings of inadequacy and anxiety.
  • One practitioner has observed that many children clock more than 7 hours a day in “screen time” and it is having a negative impact.
  • Some statistics show that over 23% of children experience cyberbullying.
  • Technology (including games) can quickly become addictive, and an inability to not use it is problematic.
  • Some studies suggest that 30% of those addicted to pornography are now female.
  • When a group of kids at a high school are asked if they all know someone who has "sexted", the answer was 100% "yes."

Projects We Are Working On

Intentionally Creating Visions and Values

We are currently working on an online curriculum that will help families through the process of creating and working toward a vision for their home. In the meantime we would love to hear from you; fell free to leave us comments on our blog posts or contact us on Facebook.

Kids With Purpose

One of the biggest life questions adults have is:  "What is my purpose, why am I here."  Purpose and Identity gives us a sense of value, along with a reason to live for something more than ourselves. We are working on materials to help caregivers and parents guide their children into greater purpose.

Our first event was in the Fall of 2017. Screenagers was a great success in the Toledo Ohio area. We will be back in late Summer of 2018 to share a brand new media guide, along with many other resources for the family. If you would like to recieve information about new resources, please sign up for our email updates.
