Sat, March 25, 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
Media is one of the strongest influencers of our kids, and many parents feel ill-equipped to build a media safe home. What about Facebook? Gaming? Music? Texting, sexting, and cell phone use and abuse?
What about SnapChat and the latest teen movies? If young people are becoming “tech savvy” as early as first grade, then what is a parent to do?
Jim will deal with the fact that cell phones are the greatest distributor of pornography and what you can do about it. Is it possible to create a media safe media home? Jim Burns believes you can. It’s easier to start early but it’s never too late. In this session, Jim Burns will tackle the practical questions and issues of media and help you develop media, music and movie contracts with your kids. This fast-paced seminar is filled with laughter, inspiring media, a Biblical perspective on media as well as practical ideas and information you need to help your kids make wise decisions about media and technology.
