Love and sincerity don’t come from a ‘like’

Love and sincerity don’t come from a ‘like’

Contrary to popular belief, “likes” don’t and shouldn't mean much to people. It takes about ten seconds to see something and decide to “like” it, maybe less. Now consider this- it also takes about ten seconds for someone to give you a genuine complement in person. Too bad not many people do that...

Access to your child’s social media will not stop cyberbullying

...Granting schools access to the social media of a child suspected of bullying may complicate things and create more harm. It would, it seems, make more sense to mandate the parent provide access to the account without giving up the password, so as to facilitate the investigation of an incident and limit access for...

Choosing the right devices for your child and family

Last week CES 2015 unveiled a lot of new gadgets and devices. Virtually everything in the daily life of family and business can be connected to the web.

How to pray for your cyber-powered child and see the face of God

Your role as the parent is to teach them about the obedience that brings about liberty to steer their own ship in life. In that sense parents are household executives and children are emerging executives. We are all learning executives with power (free will) over our own hearts and minds. I have found that when...

Follow me on Instagram

“Resistance is futile,” was the motto of the Borg on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Well, I resisted for a long time but I’ve finally given in and joined the 150 million folks who are already using Instagram.

Relating to children hooked on devices

Indeed relating to the modern child, (who is more worldly and empowered by the feeling of validation in a tap-and-click world), requires more proactive thought, reflection and conviction about your personal worldview. In generations past, the social norms for civilized conduct and compassion for fellow human beings were generally supported by the wider community...

Teaching your child to overcome cyber-powered bullying

In a cyber-powered world, bullying can feel unsurvivable, as the incidents of suicide that make the headlines remind us how fragile and strong we are depending upon our state of heart and mind. All of our children are experiencing and witnessing intense bullying in their cyber social realms, as aggressors, targets and bystanders. Here...
