Doug's note: This is the type of resource that helps us (average youth worker) guide parents--who look for practical help. This is a good resource to help parents--so much work has been done for you.

We all are constantly trying to navigate through the waters of responsible technology use. Parents are trying to figure out how to best parent this new generation. This resource walks students through responsible use of technology and social media. It's about more than education, though. It's about building bridges between students and parents, as well. Included in this resource is a parent/student discussion guide that we challenged our students to take home, using it to initiate a discussion with their parents. We also encouraged them to compile a technology contract for proper and responsible use of technology and social media.

This Resource Includes:
• Message manuscript (Word file)
• Small group guide (Word file)
• Parent/student discussion guide (Word file)
• Technology contract template (PDF)
• PowerPoint presentation file

Free Ebook by Doug Fields

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
