A conversation with Trillia Newbell about parenting, kids, and technology

This week Trillia Newbell, author, speaker, and commentator on World Radio, joins me to talk about parenting our kids in this technological day. We discuss Moxie, a forthcoming robot companion for children, from the company Embodied. We consider some of the implications of personifying technology in this way and the need for wisdom in teaching our children about interacting with technology. We dive into what it means to entrust our kids to the Lord and discuss the importance of not simply handing over a tool but taking the time to learn with your child.
