RESOURCE | The Tech-wise Family
Making conscientious choices about technology in our families is more than just using internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children. It’s about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media rather than accepting technology’s promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world’s knowledge at our fingertips. And it’s definitely not just about the kids. Andy Crouch takes readers beyond the typical questions of what, where, and when and instead challenges them to answer provocative questions like, “Who do we want to be as a family?” and “How does our use of a particular technology move us closer or farther away from that goal?”
