You are a Digital Parent
Some experts say that battle over screen time has been lost; that screens, at this point, are simply part of the human experience. It makes no more sense to worry about eliminating screens as it does to worry about flying and driving. Sure, these experiences have risks—but you cannot reasonably eliminate them.
Even if you removed access to screens from your home, you would hardly be doing your child a favor given that their time outside your home, and later in independent life, will inevitably be intertwined with technology. So instead of avoiding the realities of modern life, you have to manage the risks around them. As a parent (or grandparent or caretaker) of a young person in the digital age, you are a Digital Parent and you have a great responsibility to teach your child how to live with technology responsibly.
Savvy Cyber Kids is here to help.
From this website, you have access to the Technology Pledge and the Digital Bill of Rights—which will teach your child how to stay safe online and how to tell others how to treat them online. We also offer a list parental control Tools to help you control of your child’s screen-time.
