Do you have a love-hate relationship with blogs and social media and YouTube? Do you love what you can learn and the information you can get from the Internet and from podcasts and food websites? Yet at the same time are you afraid of what screen time and social media can do to your children, and to you and your own life?
Well, you are not alone. Everywhere we travel and most every parenting audience we speak to has this love-hate feeling. We have decided that the best way to deal with it is not just through restriction and discipline (though those are important)–the best way is to be selective, to use the good things on the Internet and social media to strengthen your family and to give you great ideas for parenting and marriage, and to seek the sites that encourage you and make you feel validated in the family-oriented lifestyle you have chosen.
To help with this, we have lent our name and a lot of our effort to a wonderful new set of awards called the Family.Is Internet Awards, which will recognize and award the bloggers, Instagrammers, Facebookers, YouTubers, podcasters, and website operators whose content does the best job of fortifying families by celebrating commitment, popularizing parenting, validating values, and bolstering balance. The first annual awards will be given in February of 2020, and you now have the opportunity to nominate your favorite internet source of “good family stuff” by contacting us and including the sentence “I nominate [name of nominee] for a Family.Is Award.” Be sure to include a link to their blog, website, podcast, Instagram account, Facebook page, or YouTube channel.
