Birgit - holy familyEditor’s Note:  Catholic Stand columnists, Tom and Kari Curran, and the parents of nine, yes, nine beautiful children, are offering a free webinar:  Wednesday, November 4th at 2 p.m. Eastern or 11 a.m Pacific. You don’t want to miss this opportunity.

Why is this webinar for you?

There is a serious and even dangerous disconnect between parents and kids in our connected world. iPhones, smartphones, laptops, game consoles, tablets, even our TVs; we are connected through the internet. But a recent study revealed that the great majority of parents fail to properly monitor their kids’ behavior online.

There is a serious and even dangerous disconnect between parents and kids in our connected world. iPhones, smartphones, laptops, game consoles, tablets, even our TVs; we are connected through the internet. But a recent study revealed that the great majority of parents fail to properly monitor their kids’ behavior online.

As parents, we have the privilege of forming and preparing our kids to go out into the world to fulfill their God given call to be saints on mission. One of the most challenging “worlds” our kids face today is the “digital world” of the internet. St. John Paul II, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and now Pope Francis have called us to be “digital missionaries”, to bring the Face and light of Christ to the digital continent of the internet.

But this digital world is filled with dangerous landmines; pornography, bullying, cutting (self-harm), extremely violent videogames and other addicting activities. As parents, we must not bury our heads; we are called to engage!

What do we do? Where do we begin? Sign up for this eye opening, free webinar where we will help you gain:

  • tom and kari outsideAwareness: You will learn to see “connected devices” like smartphones with new eyes, as you discover what our kids encounter in the digital world.
  • Protection: You will learn about technology, hardware, software, apps and services that will help you shield your kids from harm.
  • Influence: How does the “digital world” affect the “real world” of our kids, and vice versa? How can we enter our kids’ digital world and be a light in the darkness?
  • Freedom: Our kids will one day have total access to the internet. How do we shepherd them now into what St. John Paul II called “responsible freedom” where they will be able to be trusted with connected devices?
  • Engagement: Learn ways to model and monitor best practices when it comes to healthy use of the internet? How do we introduce internet technology to our younger kids? How do we intervene in situations where our kids are already immersed in negative or harmful activities on the internet?

And we want to hear from you! The webinar will be interactive, allowing you to share your comments and questions.
