Raising Wise Digital Citizens in a Complex World

Seminar A:
Putting Media and Technology in Their Proper Place in Your Home

Our little ones are growing up in an environment that is surrounded by media and technology, and it is increasingly common to see primary school children and even pre-schoolers fiddling around with a smartphone or a tablet. This session will provide tips for parents and children ministry leaders on how to build healthy media habits for your young children, what to consider before giving your child a smartphone, and how you can guide them to harness the power of technology for Christ.

Seminar B:
Social Media & Sexuality — How to Discuss Boundaries through Quality Conversations with My Teen

Our teens lead a "double life": an online life and offline one. As they spend more time on social media and other forms of media and technology, they are more affected by what happens online, which in turn impacts their behaviours and actions offline. This session, which is specially catered to parents of teenagers, will cover the latest media trends, explore why teens like what they like, and how to discuss boundaries in media, technology, and sexuality with them through quality conversations.
