As parents, we all must deal with the subject of social media when it comes to our children. We may ask ourselves the following questions: How old should they be before opening a social media account? How much time should I allow them to spend online? Should I even allow them to join social networks? These are tough questions to find clear answers to.
“Do you allow your children to go on social media?” As a Christian stepmother of two teenagers, I have been asked this question a few times so far. My answer is always the same: yes, but with boundaries.
Instead of being wary when asked about my views on social networking, I am now prepared to defend my parenting decisions based on the bible and want to share these with you.
From Baby Boomers to Generation Z and every generation in between, we all experience our share of problems. For every new generation that leaves its mark on the environment and society, new and interesting challenges arise. Can the bible really keep up with all the changes that occur? How can this new generation, Generation Z (also known as Gen Z,) benefit from the advice of a book written so long ago?
