Kids are learning the basics of the world on a tablet or smartphone.
And they’re learning to navigate the digital world on their own.
The same is true for parents.
But parents often struggle with parenting when they’ve never been in charge.
We spoke to experts to find out how to get kids the help they need in the digital age.
Learn how digital parenting has evolved over the years.
The digital revolution has changed everything.
Here are some tips to help you navigate this changing environment.1.
Get a tablet and smartphone for kids.
“The biggest challenge in the modern world is that kids have never had their parents in the office,” says Mark Karp, author of Kids in the Digital Age: How Technology is Changing the World.
That’s a huge challenge.
“You’ve got to teach your child to think about their world in terms of technology,” he says.
And parents who have never been at home with kids in the home often have trouble communicating that.
They may struggle to navigate new ways of interacting with kids, and that’s a major issue.
But Karp says parents should focus on how to use their smartphone or tablet to interact with kids on a daily basis.
“Your goal is to get your child on a phone or tablet, so they’re never at home,” he explains.
“They don’t want to be there all the time.
So the first step is to let them know what they need to do.
That can be on a computer, on a laptop, on the tablet or computer, and it can be anything.”
For example, if you want your child’s smartphone to recognize their face, you may want to ask them to say “Hi.”
Or you may ask them if they want to take pictures or video of their room, or even their parents, or if they’d like to make a video of them.
“It’s like a phone app that they can use to interact,” says Karp.
“So I think a lot of parents want to try and do all of that with their child in their own way.”
If you’re going to have your child with a tablet, he says, it’s better to have the tablet in front of them than it is to have them in the same room as you.2.
Have a smartphone for work.
“We’re in the business of keeping kids safe, and we have to have our employees on the computer, not at home in the living room,” says Dan Zaretsky, co-founder and CEO of Pinch, a company that helps parents with their kids’ social-media use.
That means that even if you have a smartphone at home, you can’t always be the one on the phone.
“If you have kids in your home, it might be harder to get them on the smartphone,” he warns.
“That means that you have to figure out how they interact with it.
So if you can have your children with you, then that makes the whole social media thing more efficient.”
Pinch helps parents share and discuss their kids on social media, which is one of the most important aspects of being a parent, says Zarebaumts CEO.
“As a parent you’re always going to be on the go,” he notes.
“And so if you’re at home and your child is away from home, that’s where the problem is.”
Take a smartphone to work.
Many companies are now offering smartphones that allow parents to share photos and videos with their children in a way that’s easier and more convenient than the traditional ways.
And it’s a big step forward for parents, says Scott Fisk, founder and CEO at iCandy.
“I think it’s great,” he tells Recode.
“There are a lot more apps that are starting to offer those types of capabilities.” iCancellable is a company he started with his wife that offers these apps to parents, so their kids can use them when they’re home.
“Parents need to be able to share content with their kid, whether it’s social media or video,” says Fisk.
“For a lot people, there’s not a lot that they’re able to do in the real world, so it’s nice to have a platform like this that allows them to do that.
Have kids with you at home.
A lot of the time, a parent will take a photo or video with their phone, but they’ll probably be sending it to the phone that they took the photo or the video.
That is where the fun comes in.
That way, they can be uploaded to the Instagram account and uploaded to other apps for later viewing. “
Instead of sending the photos to the camera, they send them to the app,” he said.
