Engage with the same content that interests your children. Be present and try to understand as much as possible about the digital landscape your child interacts with to support greater understanding.
This could look like joining in with online gaming, or using the same social media platforms. It means you get to understand how the apps and platforms work and the pitfalls to avoid. Additionally, you gain insight into the positives within these online spaces.
As parents, we can’t shy away from technology or the digital world. We have to adapt and learn to embrace it. After all, it will only grow and become an even more present part of the next generation’s lives.
