How Technology is Influencing Families
Barna Group recently completed a study about the influence of technology in families, releasing the findings in a new digital report, The Family & Technology Report.
Highlights from the study included the following five findings:
1. Parents are just as dependent on technology as are teens and tweens.
2. Most family members, even parents, feel that technology has been a positive influence on their families.
3. Very few adults or youth take substantial breaks from technology.
4. Families experience conflict about technology, but not in predictable ways.
5. Few families have experienced—or expect—churches to address technology.
