In this insightful talk, creative parenting expert and co-author of Tech-Savvy Parenting and Future-proof Your Child (Bookstorm, 2014), Nikki Bush, will help you make sense of the digital world your children are so attracted to.
For families to remain connected today, parents need to bridge the digital divide to their children. This talk, peppered with personal anecdotes, will provide you with insight and practical parenting guidelines for a plug-and-play world, from passive entertainment of the television to the interactive nature of gaming and Internet-linked computers, to the realm of social networking – often accessed via a smartphone.
We need to take conscious, positive steps to help our children to develop both the high-tech and high-touch skills to ensure they become responsible, tech-savvy digital citizens who will be able to take advantage of the best of what the online world has to offer while being protected from its potential dangers.
