In the increasingly wired world we all live in, children’s interaction with digital technology can become a concern for parents. Here is a start to managing it.
As a parent, do you worry about the amount of time your child spends on the smartphone, tablet or computer? There’s no doubt that there are wonderful things to be learnt in this wired world; yet, how much of a good thing becomes too much? Plus, there are also worries over the dangers of such ubiquitous technology, including the free availability of material inappropriate for children and the news stories we hear of predators using the Internet to befriend and lure children.
Given that this topic is increasingly on parents’ minds, Women’s Web organised a Facebook chat last week, with Life Skills expert and Clinical Psychotherapist, Aparna Balasundaram.
The chat, as well as this infographic below which we developed specifically for parents of young children, was supported by eKavach, India’s most comprehensive digital parenting application. This partnership is aimed at engaging parents and creating awareness around digital safety for parents and kids alike.

And for those of you who missed the chat, here is the link to it. Do go and have a look at some of the very pertinent questions asked, and interesting conversation that ensured!
