192. Taking a Break from Tech

Gospel Tech with Nathan Sutherland

Sep 26 2023 • 26 mins

Sometimes tech is just too much for a child, or for a season, and we need to take a step back. I want you to know two things:
  1. It's reasonable and loving to remove unhealthy tech. Take a tech break.
  2. Tech breaks need to be 30 days.
If you've given a RESET, found there's an issue, and tried to manage the problematic tech but to no avail--it's time for a tech break. In today's conversation we'll discuss:
  • taking 30 days away from unhealthy tech to reset your child's brain
  • using a RESET to start the conversation
  • building a hedge around your family (family tech framework)
  • how this is both Biblical (remove, Matthew 5:28-30) (raise up, Prov. 22:6) (good fruit vs. bad fruit, Gal. 5:19-22) and loving (give child an egg, not a scorpion (Lk. 11:11)
Finally we'll talk about replacing with Analog Adventures-pace of real life and how to introduce the tech back again after 30 days. Keep in mind, there's always a chance you won't replace it.
