Raising children in a tech-obsessed social media world is tough. What limits do you put on it? Is it safe? Why can't kids just put their phones down? Is it too late?

Each lesson (released once a week for the first five weeks) contains a new video featuring an in-depth interview between Kirk Cameron and a subject-matter expert. Lessons include conversations with everyone from a neurosurgeon to a pastor. They're packed with crucial information and practical advice when it comes to understanding how to parent in these times. There's also a 30+ page study guide chocked full of resources and ideas to help you engage your kids on the topic.
The course contains four bonus videos, and seven (7) downloadable resources. You'll meet parents just like you who have taken on the challenge of raising kids in the midst of social media pressure and are offering tips and tricks to make you successful. You'll also hear from a teen who knows what it's like to live in a tech-obsessed culture and emerge victorious. And you'll get practical tools like, "10 things to know about Snapchat."
Do the course alone or with your spouse, and complete it at your own pace. You can take it on any computer or mobile device and wherever you have wifi. Vacation, unexpected guests, or school won't prevent you from finishing, and you can always catch up. Because the course is 100% online, it's never too late to start and you won't be behind! Plus, you get unlimited access that never expires. Pause, rewind, and watch the videos as many times as you want.

One of the many benefits you get with Engage is access to downloadable resources. We've created seven guides to both inform, challenge, and help you. The list includes:
Q: Didn't Kirk already do a movie on this topic!
A: He did, but Engage is different. In early 2018 Kirk did a movie called CONNECT, which introduced families to experts that have been navigating this world for some time. It really resonated and the feedback was amazing! So we created Engage to allow parents to go deeper. It is packed with practical, rich guidance on how to approach the problem and the solutions. The movie is a great place for the whole family to start. This course is a great place for parents to dig deeper (although you’re not required to see the movie to take the course).
Q: Are you saying I have to see the movie first?
A: No! You do not have to see the movie for the course to make sense. In fact, you can do the course first if you'd like. And the movie is not REQUIRED to take the course at all.
Q: So how does the course work?
A: For the first five weeks starting April 11, we will release a new lesson every Wednesday along with that week's study guide. You will have access to all previous week's lessons as we go along. At the end of the five weeks, you will have access to all five lessons.
Q: Do I have to login at a certain time?
A: Nope! During the first five weeks of the course, we release one lesson a week. But you do not have to login at any specific time to view the videos. Once a video is up, you can go at your own pace.
Q: Can I go back and watch the videos?
A: Absolutely! You can watch the videos as many times as you'd like.
Q: How long is each lesson video?
A: The time ranges from about 15-20 minutes.
Q: What happens if I can't do the course right away?
A: No worries! Your access never expires, so you can take advantage of special pricing and offers now and do the course later.
Q: Are the lesson videos available for download or on DVD?
A: The course is available exclusively online. This allows you an extreme amount of flexibility. You can watch on your phone, tablet, or other wifi-connected device.
Q: My child isn't a teenager quite yet, is this course still relevant?
A: YES! The best time to prepare for the teenage years is before you reach them. Engage is meant for parents at ALL stages of child-rearing.
Welcome to Engage! I have six kids that are 20 years old and younger. And you can bet that poses a plethora of challenges, from dating, to faith, to social media and technology. It’s those last two that inspired this course.
See, My wife Chelsea and I are in the same position as many of you. We were thrust into situations and conversations that were so different from when we were growing up. Today, our children are facing things like sexting, online predation, cyber bullying, and easy access to every type of seedy and distorted thing you can think of.
When we sat back and surveyed what was happening to and with our children, we knew we needed help. We didn’t have all the answers, and we certainly weren’t prepared for what our kids were being exposed to.
In early 2018, we did a movie called CONNECT, which introduced families to experts that have been navigating this world for some time. It really resonated and the feedback was amazing! So we created Engage to allow parents to go deeper. It is packed with practical, rich guidance on how to approach the problem and the solutions. The movie is a great place for the whole family to start. This course is a great place for parents to dig deeper (although you’re not required to see the movie to take the course). Over the next five lessons, we’re going to give you access to what we couldn’t fit into the film as well as offer practical advice on how to take what you see and apply it to you and your children.
Our prayer is that this five-lesson course will help you understand the problem better, understand your children better, and then give you tangible help in order to navigate the complicated world of technology and social media that your children are growing up in
I would sum it up like this: This is a course to bring you from being a victim to victory!
