Technology Guide for Parents

Technology has given many good things in our day and age but has also brought along many challenges. One of the challenges is raising a student in the digital age, which can feel overwhelming and fearful. It can be difficult to wade through the technology that seems to change every day. The Ethics and Public Policy Center has created a great resource to help parents and anyone else working with students. It is informative about the harms and threats that today’s social media platforms and digital technologies pose, while also equipping parents with practical tools and resources to navigate the complex digital world.

Speaking the Truth in Love to an Identity-Confused World

Recognizing the impact transgender ideology is having on our teens and our society as a whole, the messages are meant to help parents and students discuss several of the sessions at the God’s Creation, God’s Design workshop held at Reston Bible Church on August 20, 2022. There is also a parent-teen discussion guide, so that parents and students can watch the sessions together, then discuss the questions provided.


Connecting Parents, Teens and Jesus in a Disconnected World

Axis does a great job of being very relevant to what is happening right now in culture and giving you resources to understand it and talk about it with your kids.
