Screens & the Impact on Children’s Faith

“Screen time has replaced much of in-person worship, Christian community, and older role models discipling our youth.” Arlene Pellicane talks with us about her book, “Screen Kids” and how too much screen time can impact our children’s well-being and faith. With technology that is engineered to keep kids scrolling, Arlene explains how to deal with a child who is on the phone too much and gives you five skills that every child needs in a tech driven world.
