If I approach you with a question “Does your child come and ask you to take a look at her/his creations while playing”, you would give me a huge nodding yes. Now if I asked you “Does your child come and ask you to take a look at her/his creations while playing on her/his digital device”, the nods would go down to somewhere between sometimes to never. There simply is no way for me as a parent today to participate in my child’s quests and achievements in her/his digital space, other than looking over her/his shoulder. There is no denying the fact that phones and tablets are here to stay.
So how will you hold your child’s hand in the digital world? Today she/he is alone there.
