Not too long ago, Maggie asked, “How do Christian parents handle “MySpace”? I posted a response to this question on her blog in which I pointed her to an excellent post by Mark Strohm (click here). Here, Mark offers a number of general suggestions and specific alternatives.
One of the alternatives on his list is ShoutLife.com. I just read that this free Christian online community was started by a friend of Keith Lancaster, Paul McClellan, who formerly served as Acappella’s volunteer webmaster.
As the parent of teenagers who use services like this on a daily basis, I would like to encourage everyone to take a close look at this resource and encourage our teens to check it out. Let’s do everything we can to help our children have a safe internet experience.
