Media Sobriety Covenant

We recommend that all adults that wish to keep their family safe online and with media consider making the following commitment.  While we do not believe it is helpful to be legalistic or too rigid, we do believe that there is power to making and signing covenants.  The goal of this covenant is to establish boundaries to help keep a family safe in the information age.
