It’s tricky parenting in the digital age. In addition to all your basic child-rearing challenges, you also need to strike a fine balance when it comes to technology and your kid.
Some parents try to limit screen time as much as possible, including, famously, actress Joanne Peh when she had her first child. But as even she discovered, there comes a time when you can no longer ban devices.
Instead of seeing them as all bad, screen time and exposure to digital content can actually help your toddler and preschooler learn. Besides, you don’t want them to be left behind later on, as digital skills are now in demand in the workplace.
The problem is, what kind of content and how to expose your child so she will pick up useful skills, without getting device-withdrawal symptoms when you take away her screen time.
That’s why you’ll want to sign up for the Raising the Future: The Tech Generation seminar.
Organised by the British Council, the event brings together experts in education and technology to help you raising a digital kid with more confidence.
Here’s a run-down of the topics:
How parents can get the best out of children’s usage of technology
How technology has transformed children’s education
Skills children should build to flourish in a tech-driven world
Joining the panel discussion is Stephanie Yeo, editor of Singapore’s leading parenting magazine, Young Parents.
Be among the first 50 sign-ups and you’ll get a free $30 cash voucher from artisan bakery Creme Maison, too (no minimum purchase required). Which means you get to attend the seminar for free!
