Many thanks to Lasting Divergence for taking some time to interview me about Internet dangers.  They’ve posted my replies to their questions on their blog:

Part 1 – Internet Dangers and Accountability Software:

What are the dangers lurking on the Internet? What negative impact does unchecked access to technology have on the family? What is “Covenant Eyes” and how does it address these dangers?

Part 2 – Avoiding Internet Pitfalls and Finding Good Accountability:

Are there any other suggestions or guidelines for avoiding pitfalls online? What does good accountability look like? What stories of hope and healing can you offer to parents who have become entangled in the darker side of the Internet themselves?

Part 3 – Counseling Those Who Struggle:

What counsel can you give to parents who have children struggling with habitual viewing of online pornography? What recommendations do you make to pastors to equip and encourage families as they seek to avoid or escape being ensnared by Internet temptations?

Thanks, Lasting Divergence, for the doing the interview.  Best wishes on the reThink Conference today!
