Building a Godly Foundation: Raising Children in the Digital Age – Chris Gonzales, Part 2

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

Chris Gonzales resigned from the FBI after 14 years as a Special Agent when he realized the biggest threat we face today is in the war for the hearts and minds of our youth.

As parents, we often just don’t realize the incredible amount of terrible content and messaging forced onto our youth through social media and on-demand content such as YouTube Kids, Netflix, Disney, and Nickelodeon. Chris wrote an to tell parents about the dangers of children’s media.  Parents feel like they have nowhere to turn to find good content in a safe environment; so, after nineteen years in law enforcement, Chris felt God was calling him to a new fight to protect children in the digital realm. Chris launched GoodTube Kids to create a safe place for kids and a resource for parents all in one place.
