Developments in technology have altered more than just the way children learn and play, it has also altered the way we need to parent. Raising children in our ever more technolological society can seem overwhelming at times, but navigating the digital world can be made easier via a few simple tips.
One good tip is that if you have iPad or a computer that your child has regular access to, you should turn on parental controls. The parental controls on the Ipad imits the websites that can be accessed and also puts an age restriction onto the apps that can be downloaded or even turn them off completely. When your children are online, ask them to demonstrate what they are doing.
