7 Y 19 Romans 14:19 Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another. Romans 12:18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Matthew 12:36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” 7

8 2 Corinthians 10:10 “For his letters,” they say, “are weighty and powerful, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.” 2 Corinthians 10:11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when we are absent, such we will also be in deed when we are present.

9 Online Gaming Excerpt from Dec. 2013 article on I asked my eight year old to explain how Minecraft works. I wanted to know what an average day in his seemingly endless world of Minecraft servers looks like. He told me how he signs on to certain servers first, checking out what’s going on there, before moving somewhere else to build his own scenarios that random block-headed strangers can visit. I asked him if people were mean to each other on Minecraft. “Sometimes,” he said, “like calling people names and using curse words and wrecking people’s stuff.” It occurs to me that multi-player Minecraft is basically a huge, virtual version of the school playground. We as parents should be talking to our kids about the games so that we can give them the proper vocabulary and tools for navigating their way through virtual and real social scenarios. I 26 9

10 When gaming online, you will likely interact with some other players who will post obscene, racist, sexual and violent remarks. Same goes for many online forums. Teach your kids good “netiquette”. Talk to them about how to be nice to other people when texting or online, how to respond when someone else is acting inappropriately, and the importance of account privacy and information security. Be Involved… E7E7 10

11 Researchers from Arizona State University, say that “Parents miss a huge opportunity when they walk away from playing video games with their kids. Often parents don’t understand that many video games are meant to be shared and can teach young people about science, literacy and problem solving. Gaming with their children also offers parents countless ways to insert their own ‘teaching moment.’” Video games can be an opportunity to open conversations with your kids. 11

12 FBI Cyber Division - Never give out identifying information such as your real name, home address, school name, or telephone number. Never respond to messages or bulletin board postings that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, or harassing. National Cyber Security Alliance - 50% of Facebook users give out enough personal data, such as full name and birth date, to enable identity theft. I9I9 12

18 Over 900 new apps are submitted to Apple’s App Store each day. Approximately 830 new apps are added daily to the Android Market. An app is short for “application.” For our discussion, an app is a program or software that runs on a mobile device. App categories include: Games, Books, Education, Lifestyle, Music, News, Social Networking, Travel, Weather, Etc. Most of these tools can be fun, educational and helpful. But some apps can be misused or dangerous. 18

The Danger – a child might be taking or receiving pictures or videos that were dangerous and the parent wouldn’t be able to see the images on the phone. SMS appsPhoto Vault L 21 19

20 “Poof” appsDownWhisperPhoto Vault KiK Messenger – This is a private messenger app that allows kids to send private messages that their parents can’t see.

37 Don’t be afraid to ask for or take “your child’s” phone. I trust my kids. I don't trust OTHER people's kids. My kids know the phones they use are MINE. They are not to expect privacy using MY PHONES. They know at any time, I can read through their messages. It isn't their right to have a phone, it is a PRIVILEDGE. Don’t you trust your kid?

39 Proverbs 4:14 Do not enter the path of the wicked, And do not walk in the way of evil. 15 Avoid it, do not travel on it; Turn away from it and pass on. 16 For they do not sleep unless they have done evil; And their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall. 17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, And drink the wine of violence. 18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. 19 The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble. 26 Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established. 27 Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.

42 Life360 uses the Smartphone's GPS to track your location and the location of your group members. C 12 42

43 Life360 can send you notifications when your loved one has left or arrived at designated locations. 43

44 Your child can use Life360 to check-in. 44

45 Life360 will send you a notification that your child is checking in and their current location. 45

46 Answer – GPS tracking is reasonably accurate on smart phones and tablets. Side note - This is very helpful if your phone is stolen or if you misplace your phone on a regular basis like me! 46 Question- How accurate is it?

47 Most of these services have a “panic” feature. Life360 will notify you IMMEDIATELY if a member of your group pushes the panic button. D 22 47

48 And you will receive a call giving you information about the location of the person that pushed the panic button. L 16 48

49 Answer – Yes. Life360 will indicate when a member of your group has turned of his/her location sharing. Question- Can my child turn their location sharing off? 49

50 Monitoring and safeguarding are helpful, but will NEVER be a substitute for teaching and communicating. Christians are instructed to teach their children the Bible and today that includes teaching them how to apply Bible wisdom to modern media. Phone/Internet safety are just like any other kind of safety. You don’t just teach your child how to cross the street one time, you tell them to “look both ways” for years! H5H5 50

51 Puzzle answer Puzzle Answer Deuteronomy 6:5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6 "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 51
