Jonathan McKee is the president of The Source for Youth Ministry and is also the author of numerous books. In his latest book "52 Ways to Connect with Your Smartphone Obsessed Kid" Jonathan offers just the help you need to have meaningful interaction with your kids instead of always overreacting to their unhealthy consumption of technology and media. In a world where over 80 percent of 12- to 17-year-olds now own a smartphone, parents are searching for ways to pry their kids eyes from their devices and engage them in real, face-to-face conversation. Jonathan drawing from his 20-plus years of experience working with teenagers, studying youth culture, and raising three teens of his own--provides an abundant supply of useful tips and creative ideas to help you bond with the Smartphone Generation
Technology is a great tool to use every once in a while. It is not this crutch that we need to rely on. Good old fashion communication works. Jonathan believes that we need to move our kids from being tech dependent to being tech enabled. 66% of parents agree that their kids are obsessed with their phone. 52 % of young people said that they agreed that they used it too much. The young people said they would not mind to limit their use of technology but they do not know how to do that.
Sometimes technology can be used as a way of slipping under the radar. Staring at their phone is just another way to show that they are busy and to slip under the radar. It does not have to be like that, you can connect with you kids.
