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!

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
