A Teen's Life Online

Last weekend, Hope's Your Kid & Technology seminar scratched a proverbial parenting itch. Our very own experts from Hope's IT, kids and student ministries were there, leading a panel discussion on how and what to navigate in our world of technology as we parent our children with the available technology in today's culture.

Mark Gregston recently podcasted on this very subject, and he makes some excellent points and also interviews a student, Mackenzie, about his experiences online.
