Parents who don’t let their kids on technology are hypocrites.
Adults are glued to their phones and distracted by:
- Notifications buzzing
- Emails flying in
- Social media scrolling
- Trying to find the best picture filter
Kids watch educational videos, learn strategy through gaming, and interact with other kids from around the world.
Technology broadens their intelligence and vocabulary and it deepens their curiosity and creativity.
Kids shouldn’t live on technology but exposure is key to their upbringing. It’s entrenching them in the world they are going to live in. It’s also teaching them self-control at an early age.
Technology isn’t bad if it’s used in the right way.
If we start modeling the correct behavior ourselves we’ll be more inclined to know how to pattern those behaviors in our kids and set the necessary boundaries for them to succeed.
