Technology offers children the world.
On the positive side, screens help with homework, teach new skills, and connect your child with friends and family.
But there are serious dangers, too. Pornography, predators, and destructive influences are always crouching at the door.
How can parents best love and protect their children when they’re younger and help them develop into young men and women of character?
Author Julie Lowe is with us on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Protecting Your Kids from Worldly Dangers” to offer practical insight and advice.
She is a faculty member and licensed professional counselor at the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation. She’s also the author of the book Safeguards: Shielding Our Homes and Equipping Our Kids.
Julie says your loving influence will help your children:
- Build respect and cooperation.
- Create an atmosphere of deference and admiration.
- Provide security.
- Encourage a healthy dependence on parents for spiritual and emotional nurturing.
- Model a reliance on wise counsel, especially from the Lord.
- Display a proper respect for leadership and authority.
