Recently, our friend Chris Martin, author of the book “Terms of Service: The Real Cost of Social Media”, said that our kids are spending so much time online, that social media is likely the greatest force of discipleship among the teens in our homes and churches. He offers these three suggestions on how to reclaim our God-given roles as those called to disciple our kids. First, we have to be willing to change our own habits. The average social media user spends about two and a half hours a day on social media. That’s not just our kids. That’s adults as well. Make sure you deal with your own bad habits before you address those of your kids. Second, we need to emphasize the importance of living life off-line. We must teach them that the best life is away from social media feeds and screens. Kids who experience this for the first time know it to be true. And finally, we must model what it means to be the embodied church. We need to involve our kids in all aspects of our church life, including corporate worship.
