Parents in the digital age are all too aware of the growing competition for the attention of their children. In fact, every day approximately 5,000 messages are targeted at today’s families—information designed to impact our perceptions and direct our feelings. To be inundated with 35,000 messages per week is an extraordinary development in our culture, affecting the way we think, act, and live.
This deluge is complicated by the fact that much of this information is intended to hold us in a state of uncertainty or suspense, to keep us coming back for more.
For parents to be aware of the media’s intent and to enhance student’s lives in redemptive ways, we must remain strategic in the way we interact with information and intentional in training children to benefit from it instead of merely responding to it.
We believe a Family Membership better enables families to meet these challenges and more fully realize the benefits by helping to equip parents and children to use information well.
Ultimately, when entire families thrive in this way, our children will grow to be more successful professionals and stronger influences for truth in our culture—all in pursuit of the kind of life God intends.
