An Interfaith Conversation on Screen Time

Monday, July 22, 2019

7:30 PM EST

What role does faith play in the way families manage screen time? Join us for a unique opportunity to hear from three faith leaders on how digital devices shape children’s character, habits, and spiritual growth. The first in our new Action Network Live event series, this event brings specific faith traditions to bear on family media use that will also be universally applicable. Tiffany Shlain, author of 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day A Week, will discuss how a technology Shabbat enriched her family’s interactions and quality of life. Her Character Day is celebrated in schools across the globe. Amin Aaser, founder and director of Noor Kids, will outline tools for families of minority children to build their character and identity in a screen-saturated culture. Andy Crouch, leading Christian author of The Tech-Wise Family, will explain the 10 Commitments families can use to put technology in its proper place and raise children who thrive.
