Taking Time to Examine Our Tech

Barna Group collaborated with Andy Crouch to conduct research for his book “The Tech-Wise Family,” and in a recent Barna article, they released the findings that 77 percent of all parents of children ages 4 to 17 allow their kids to be on their devices 4.65 hours a day. Parents surveyed said tech disrupts meals at the dinner table. With 19 percent of families reportedly “always bringing their devices to meals,” Crouch encourages families to take a social media break. In fact, 60 percent of adults say they never step away from social media. Read through some of the top findings from Barna’s research here.
