There’s no two ways about it parents feel the pressure to be constantly engaging with their children and worry that their education and emotional development is being adversely affected by overuse of digital media such as phones, tablets, devices and screens.

But, the fact is parents have to embrace technology and where possible involve themselves in the process. Just not allowing their children to define themselves based on their digital usage or distort their perception of the world. Children should not feel pressured they “have to be learning something” all the time but enjoying the digital dance of life.
