EP 216 Tech & Teaching Tuesdays Digital Safety for all ages: Tips, and Tools for Confident Parenting No-Problem Parenting

    • Parenting

Welcome to Tech and Teaching Tuesdays!
In this episode, we tackle the crucial question: How can you ensure your child’s online safety? Join me as I share technology tips tailored for toddlers to teens.
 
We kick things off by acknowledging the expansive digital landscape our kids are growing up in, moving beyond mere screen time management to establish early childhood boundaries. In middle childhood, the focus shifts to fostering critical thinking and online etiquette, utilizing the "Three W's" - Who, What, and Why - as a powerful tool for guiding your child's online behavior. Consider taping these questions as a friendly reminder inside the cover of their tablet or in their playroom.
 
Venturing into adolescence, a time of heightened emotions and rapid changes, we emphasize the significance of open communication and privacy awareness. Creating a digital contract with your teen, as discussed in Episode 12 and reiterated today, becomes a valuable tool outlining expectations, consequences, and fostering collaboration.
 
For those eager to dig deeper into tech safety and communication strategies, check out Episodes 12 and 13 of No Problem Parenting. Additionally, Episode 24 introduces an alternative to screens with Drew Vernon from Tonies.com, offering a screen-free, imagination-building experience for your little ones.
 
Stay tuned for our next episode, where we'll explore the delicate balance of determining the right amount of screen time for your child. Ensuring our children's online safety may be tricky, but putting in the effort early on will save you frustration in the long run. Remember, preparing our kids for the digital world is one of the most important parenting jobs in this digital era. It's the future, and we want to celebrate it more than fear it.
