My Kids Can’t Stop Playing Fortnite
Should Parents be Concerned?
by Jonathan McKee
4/20/2018

It’s a video game that many have described as Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead (which covers a pretty broad spectrum… in movies it would be like saying Incredibles meets Deadpool).

Every kid is talking about it, and anyone with an Xbox, PlayStation, computer or an iPhone can jump in on a match.

The game is Fortnite, and it’s all anyone is talking about.

JONATHAN'S BLOG: Four conversations parents must have
As requests are coming in for speaking this fall, I wanted to let you know about a new workshop I'm launching... FOUR CONVERSATIONS! It's the first parent workshop I'm doing where I have parents and kids in the same room!



Right now my go-to workshop for parents is PARENTING THE SMARTPHONE GENERATION... I taught this workshop in almost 30 churches in the U.S. last year. For those churches, this new workshop is a natural next step to opening up the doors of dialogue about these important issues with families.

My goal is to start conversations in the workshop that will continue in the home.

The workshop focuses on helping young people think before they post, the focus of my new book, The Teen's Guide to Social Media & Mobile Devices (here's a recent TV interview about the importance of these conversations).

For more information on how to book me for one of these workshops, just visit my PARENT WORKSHOPS page or click here to CONTACT ME ABOUT BOOKING one of these workshops.

The Movies That Will Heat Up the Box Office This Summer
David R. Smith

Superheroes that are role models, and superheroes that are anything but. Thieves from outer space, and thieves from New York City. And dinosaurs. Lots and lots of flesh-ripping, human-digesting dinosaurs.

It's gonna be a big summer at the box office this...
