The internet is a constantly changing and updating stream of digital content. New apps and technologies come out everyday that tap into this source in various ways, for good or for ill.
This is why knowing the dangers of technology is so important for parents. Staying up to date on the latest technological trends among young people can help parents protect their kids as they interact with technology.
Why Knowing the Dangers of Technology Is Vital for Parents Today
Parenting kids used to come more naturally, but since technology has taken over almost every area of our lives, we now need to be more tech savvy. Knowing exactly what is out there by way of technology is virtually compulsory for the 21st century parent—and all at a time when we have the least time.
By the way, being more tech savvy will certainly include knowing how to set more appropriate tech limits. But, by all means, use technology to learn more about technology. We all know about Facebook and Twitter, but how about Instagram, Snapchat, Kik, WhatsApp, or WeChat? The dangers of these, and more, need to be known by the effective 21st century parent.
