I feel like it is a challenging time to raise kids. How about you?
I am sure every generation has probably thought the same thing, ha.
But, with the advent of smartphones and tablets, raising our kids to be smart about technology—both being able to use it and not suffer harm—is tough waters to navigate.
I realize this can be a contentious topic. We can have strong, differing opinions. And I think that is ok! After all, we’re all trying our best to figure it out—often long before all the research and facts are out there for us to consider.
What got me to thinking about tech and our kids today was this article in USA Today.
As a parent I have struggled to find balance when it comes to tech and my children. What kinds of tech should I give them access to and at what age? How frequent and for what duration? What kinds of parental controls do I set? These are questions Brance and I come back to again and again.
I’m so curious? What are your thoughts on kids and tech? How are you navigating these tricky waters in your family? While circumstances may be different from family to family, I feel like we can learn a lot from each other!
