The purpose of this guide is to educate parents and other adults working with and mentoring children (such as pastors, teachers, coaches, etc.) on the real threats and harms that today’s social media platforms and digital technologies pose to our children and to equip parents with practical tools and resources to help them best protect their children. This guide offers both suggestions on boundaries to put in place around technology and how to have conversations with children about developing healthy habits with technology. This guide also explains practical tools and resources that are available to parents to protect their children, like parental controls and other protective software or apps, as well as alternative technology options that are safer than others for children to use. We hope this guide will help in navigating the challenges of parenting in today’s digital age and empower parents with the knowledge and tools they need to best protect their children.
