Life as a digital parent means embracing technology for its positives – yet keeping your child safe as she/he enjoys its benefits. Share your digi-parenting story.
Computers, tablets, mobiles, and soon – wearable devices; technology follows us wherever we go. How can our children be left behind?
Kids love using the Internet and smartphones, whether it is to watch fun videos, help in school assignments or chat with a grandparent in another city. Yet, as they grow increasingly tech-savvy, there are also attendant dangers such as predators that lurk online, cyber-bullying and age inappropriate content.
This campaign supported by eKavach, India’s first digital parenting application, is all about sharing your digi-parenting story – how you handle the presence of technology in your child’s life and what you feel about it.
Include a note mentioning that this post is being written as part of the Women’s Web – eKavach ‘This Digi-Parenting Life!’ campaign with a link to the eKavach website

This initiative generated a tremendous amount of interest on all our social media platforms, and we thank you for all the valuable suggestions and sharing of experiences. Since the number of blog posts itself was a little lesser than anticipated, the number of prizes is being modified a little bit, while keeping the spirit very much intact. Here they are:
The 3 winners to receive prize vouchers:
Ash Arun, Being A Digi-Parent
Apurva Abhyankar, Digi-Parenting, My Way
Nupur, When Virtual Becomes Real
We’re also selecting 3 early bird winners to receive a 1 year subscription from e-Kavach and they are Ash Arun, Prateek Gautam and Vinitha.
Congratulations and thank you all for your participation!
This initiative will be open from 27th October to 14th November 2014. Do make sure your post is submitted here in the comments before 14th November 10 PM IST.
