My Child and Technology in the Home
Hello Parents and Families,
Maybe it was a Super Nintendo, Oregon Trail on the school computer, or immersing yourself in episodes of Full House, but our exposure to technology was vastly different from what our children experience. They’re inundated with technology EVERYWHERE they turn. They even have the ability to carry their technology around with them inside their pocket!
Does that mean we just hand them an Ipad, unlimited Netflix and YouTube access, and an unmonitored TV and allow them to handle technology however they deem fit? With this blog, we want to help you as a parent understand the pros and cons of technology and how to manage it in a way that sets your child up for success.
How do we manage screen time such as TV, movies, video games, etc. with our child, and WHY should we put parameters around their use of technology anyway? This week’s video is going to tackle these questions, plus more from the home side (TV, movies, video games, etc.).
With the next blog it will include ideas for assuring your child’s safety with technology with mobile devices!
