Unplugged Parenting

I think we can agree that the Internet is almost like a fifth limb (apart from the 2 arms and 2 legs that the majority of us are born with). It seems like very few of us in the developed world can be happy without access to some sort of screen.

This realisation calls for parents’ special attention so that we can cultivate healthy digital habits in our children. Because there are no guidelines on how many hours a child should be spending on the screen, many parents are setting their own limits, hoping they get it right. But setting a time limit is not the only solution to the screen-addict generation. We are more interested in instilling healthy habits when it comes to screen usage among our children.

I will post relevant articles on this page as we go along. Do visit this page again soon.
