Keeping tabs on your kid’s online activities is not an easy task so when our Editor-in-Chief, Kristen Daukas, was asked her advice, she was more than happy to help!
What have been some of the biggest parenting headaches you’ve faced related to your children and technology?
Like most parents, it’s staying on top of all the different apps and sites that come out daily. Add their immaturity, need for approval from their peers and the huge amount of cyberbullying and it’s a constant headache.
What has surprised you the most about the way your kids use technology?
Nothing really surprises me but I think a lot of adults would be surprised to know how much their kids use technology for the betterment of their lives. They can research things, learn things, participate in things across the world – there is no limit to what they can do.
Why do you think parents and educators benefit from technology training?
Being able to stay on top of what apps and sites our kids are currently using is critical in knowing what to watch out for. I’m not saying you have to be a power-user (I hate to tell you but you’ll never know more than they do) but at least knows the basics and ins and outs of the big ones.
