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.
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!

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
