The Art & Science of Parenting in the Digital Age (Children)
Children are exposed to digital devices from a very young age. Video games & online videos are usually the first teachers of young minds. Primary school children also adopt personal digital devices as learning tools. All these expose our young children to both opportunities & risk of harm.
Many parents worry about harmful online content, game addiction, online strangers and media violence - issues that may affect the child’s physical, emotional and mental health. They also struggle with keeping children away from devices.
This programme draws on cutting-edge research to understand the effects of such exposure and to separate risk from harm. Parents will receive holistic perspectives on issues surrounding video gaming and social media. Through the use of behaviour profiles & media-planning tools, parents will be guided to develop practical plans for cyber wellness & holistic development. They will also learn parenting strategies to manage primary school children’s use of technology.
What will participants learn?
- Make media choices to suit family priorities and prepare the children for school
- Develop a media plan for children’s wellness
- Choose and use technological tools to carry out the media plan
