Stop for a moment. Think about the last time you had a conversation with one of your children. A conversation? Yes, an exchange of sentiments, observations, opinions, or ideas, Merriam-Webster reminds us. Hmmm… If you’re having a hard time remembering, then you’re not alone.
In Chapter 7 of The Tech-Wise Family, Andy Crouch challenges us to take advantage of built-in family time where family members are in the same place at the same time. “Where is this ideal place?” you may ask. The car. If we begin to view car time as conversation time instead of tech time, we will continue making steps towards putting technology in its proper place. In contrast to technology, conversation – a sharing of thoughts and ideas – is not easy, and it’s certainly not everywhere, but it’s worth investing in. Who knows, your commute might end up being the very best and most fulfilling part of your family’s day.
