– Understand that the use of technology and social media are not inherently evil or good. They can be one or the other depending upon how we use them.
– A parent’s main responsibility is to raise their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord, which assumes training a child to make godly decisions as adults. Eph 6:4
– Understand the potential danger compared to the potential benefit. The potential danger is far greater in our opinion, however, this does not necessitate forbidding the use of these platforms.
– Making a wise decision requires knowing your child well. Some teens will be mature enough to handle the freedom/responsibility while others will almost certainly lack the maturity to make good decisions.
