Digital Parenting by the Ages

Growing up in a digital world, our children are adopting technologies—touching, seeing and interacting with them, and ultimately, understanding the world through the lens of these tools—at younger and faster rates than ever before. As a parent, it’s worthwhile to pause and think about what this means for children at all ages, considering everything from brain development to socialization, physical safety and, of course, cyber ethics and cyber safety.

There was a time when the childhood lessons of “don’t talk to strangers,” and the “golden rule” were enough to keep kids safe. These lessons could be applied to more mature circumstances as the child aged and because kids learned them young, they were better equipped to make safe decisions when they got older. But times have changed. Technology happened. Today, kids have unfettered access to internet-enabled screens, likened to taking the front door off the family home and inviting strangers—potentially dangerous ones—in to play.

Parenting has never been easy. But parenting in the Digital Age has brought with it new challenges that must be addressed to ensure the health and well-being of our kids. The mistakes our children can make—posting something that gets them kicked off a team or refused entry to the college of their choice or connecting with a child predator who grooms them over time—has the potential to haunt them for the rest of their lives, or worse yet, put them in a life or death situation.

The reality is that there is no one-stop prescriptive formula for keeping kids safe online. Technology changes very quickly, so the approach of merely advising on the apps or platforms to use/avoid or specific direction on parental controls is not effective enough. Our children need adults guiding them towards safe and appropriate behavior. They need their parents and caregivers to treat the virtual world like the playground that it is and establish safety protocols early in child development. Parents then must refresh these lessons again and again as the child ages.

Guía de Crianza Digital en la Tecnología: Criando Niños Ciber Inteligentes

Savvy Cyber Kids está enfocado en educar y empoderar a los ciudadanos digital para tomar decisiones inteligentes mientras crecen con la tecnología. ¿Cuál es la mejor manera de llegar a los niños? A través de sus padres y maestros, ¡claro! Puede sentirse con la confianza de que, al usar las herramientas proporcionadas aquí, ayudará a sus hijos a tomar decisiones digitales inteligentes. Dados todos los peligros inherentes al mundo digital, puede ser tentador prohibir a sus hijos juegos y redes sociales. No participar significa no problemas, ¿correcto? Pero esa no es una realidad en el mundo de hoy, donde todo lo que los niños quieren hacer (¡incluso los pequeños!) es jugar juegos en su teléfono o tableta y las redes sociales son una manera clave en la que los preadolescentes y adolescentes socializan y pasan su tiempo. En vez de decir no a cada solicitud, use cada nueva solicitud de app, juego o red social como un momento de enseñanza con su hijo. Le guste o no, está criando a Nativos Digitales, los jóvenes nacen en un mundo que es, si no definido por la tecnología, entonces ciertamente rodeado por tecnología en maneras siempre cambiantes. Esto significa que usted es un Padre Digital. Desde el punto de vista de Savvy Cyber Kids nosotros—padres, abuelos, educadores y cualquier adulto que cuida a una persona joven—tenemos la responsabilidad de crear a niños ciber conscientes. Su seguridad, si no sus vidas, dependen de ello. Y su reputación y su habilidad de no tomar decisiones negativas que impacten el resto de sus vidas también dependen de ello.
