Technology is all around us. Our children are digital natives and we are sometimes behind their technology learning curve. Kids are often allowed unsupervised time with electronic devices, which gives them access to the world wide web. Did you know that 46% teens admitted if they knew their parents were paying attention, they would change their online behavior. I know there are times when I allow my kids to play on their iPad without my supervision so I was happy to find out about iParent.TV (iParentTV). The statistics related to children’s digital use is probably not surprising, but we should all take not and protect our kids a little better.
What is iParent.TV?
If your kids are awake, they’re probably on a smartphone, in front of a smart tv, downloading apps, or posting to social networks. And most likely you have no idea what some of those apps or social networks even do. iParentTV will be a yearly, subscription-based website for teaching and informing parents on all things tech, mobile, devices, websites, and apps for kids so that you will know.
What’s the Problem?
Most parents don’t have an inside track to tech or social media dangers, let alone how to safeguard their kids against them.
- 58% of 10-12 year old kids believe they know how to hide their online activities from their parents.
- 46% of them said they would change their online behavior if they knew their parents were paying attention.
