Being a modern mama, I need to confess that I give my Preschooler son an hour daily to engage in his online activities. These involve listening to some evocative stories, exploring the animal world, rhyming with the beautiful visuals and more so. To me, this is not a guilt, till the time me, as a parent ensures that his digital time is limited and he has enough of outdoor peer play & socialising activities. A true maxim which suits here : “Too much of anything is bad for you“. And so, what kids need here is an equilibrium and they need to maintain that fine line.

We need a balance between the Outdoor activities, Digital Time and Family Time. Till the day this perfection goes on, I’m sure parents are happy when kids are learning something creative using the digital world.

But then, as kids grow, their choices vary, decisions start getting influenced basis their buddies, their thoughts. This is where our role as a parent comes in. We need to be psychologically observant for our child. We need to discuss about our kids attitudes, their friends, their various approaches. As kids grow our command over their digital life starts receeding. But before that reduction, teach kids to draw a fine line and keep up the balance.

To me, Digital media is something we cannot avoid, it can be a powerful teacher, if taken in a constructive manner.

Pros of Digital world for kids : 

  • Helps in creative development
  • Enhances learning and encourage practical learning
  • Enhances cognitive development and hand eye coordinations
  • Helps in making friends for shy children
  • Connect with other kids of similar interests
  • Help them know diversity of the world(can prevent racism)

But despite the positive impacts, many of us see our kids landing in a different direction.

Cons of Digital world for kids :

  • Cyber Bullying
  • Violent behaviour
  • Reduced Outdoor and socializing activities
  • Connecting to Pedophiles & Pornography
  • Increase in Obesity and other Psychological /health disorders
  • Effect on academic performance
  • Leaning towards crime
  • Interference in sleep

So where is that boundary for kids ??

In a survey, it was shared that 73% of parents want to limit their kids’ TV time, and 66% talk to their kids about the dangers of social media sites”. But,  only a small quantum of respondents “actively monitor their kids’. If this “monitoring” factor is zeroed, then for sure the cons are bound to surpass the pros of technology. It can lead of excess viewing and even inappropriate content viewing.

Internet is a giant which can provide kids with ample educational and developmental information. What we as parents need to do is monitoring our child’s  viewing patterns. And here is where I believe, the new generation, an award winning app – “Protect Your Kid”, comes into picture.

Helping parents find their way via “Protect Your Kid” App :

  • This app was nominated for the prestigious World Summit Awards 2017. They are a part of top 350 world apps!
  • The creator of the app (Bulbera) was selected as “Innovative enterprise for 2017”, where Protect Your Kid was showcased.
  • The app is completely FREE in India, isn’t that astounding?

Innovative Corner : What does Protect Your Kid app offers? 

As their tag line says “ Protect your kids online, be happy offline”, this online – offline relationship is the most important for parents.

    I do keep an eye on the time my kids get tablet time. I encourage them to play with each other and other things rather then just play electronic games and watch TV all day.

  3. Laurence

    Wow, I’m really amaze with our technology nowadays. This is a good app to monitor your kids progress. But I hope they won’t rely too much on technologies 🙂

    This is great. it is so super important to monitor your kids online activity. There is so much out there which we need to protect children from.

  11. Amrit kaur

    Keeping kids in front of digital media is good if done for limited time. We should not give access to digital media for long hours to small kids and even us adults should restrict the usage.

  12. Eloise

    my ex needs this app for our kids and stat! I’ll have to share this post with him! My kids come home and talk about what they watched at Dada’s house and it’s too mature for them to be watching at their age… thanks for the info!

    I think being a parent in today’s digital world would be so hard and I take my hat off to everyone who is navigating these waters. I’m with you that not all online activity is bad and kids can really benefit from so many activities out there the combine learning and play. How wonderful there’s an app that will help keep our kids safe and also within whatever boundaries parents decide are best for their families. x

  14. Vicky

    I really like the idea of this app. Monitoring what your kids are doing online is very important, as they should be able to explore online but we need to ensure their safety too. I completely agree that every in moderation is good, and if it can combine learning and play then it’s even better! Thanks for sharing! x

  15. Rose Mont

    I was not aware of this app. Both of my younger kids have tablets. I do have parental controls on and they have to have me push in a code everytime they put a new game on or watch a movie. Their screen time is also limited.

  16. ryetalkstotheworld

    I think the most important part here is the timer feature. It helps condition the kids to expect limited browsing times.

  17. Joline

    This is an awesome app! I think my nephew and my niece are way too young to know how to work a tablet but I’m old fashioned lol. Being able to supervise their screen time is just the thing parents need.

  18. Ana De-Jesus

    I agree that the digital world can be a great teacher, especially in a world that is conditioned for technology. Of course there are concerns like cyber bullying and ‘grooming online’ but at the same time children do need to use the digital world especially for school assignments. What a great way to monitor and protect your children with ‘protect your kid”s app.

  19. Michele Dennis

    I wish they would have had something like this when my kids were younger, I had to monitor them the “old fashion” way…lol! Cyber security is so important these days along with keeping our children safe while they are online! I will definitely be spreading the word about this app to my friends who still have younger kids as both mine are adults now…

  20. rakhiparsai11984

    I am so happy to see that there are such apps available for parents to keep their kids safe in this madness of online world. Also as a parent myself I understand that we need to allow kids this digital time as well without letting the guilt kill us. I also allow my daughter but couldn’t control her addiction which was growing. I am really happy to have read this post and would love to immediately try this app.

  21. denni

    Your article makes a lot of sense , maybe the smartest I read in a long time regarding this topic. We are responsible both for educate and protect the children and banning technology is not the answer, but teach them the skills on how to manage and cope with .

  22. Mrinal Kiran

    We cannot stop kids from accessing the internet and that means they will get exposed to several bad things! This app is really really helpful for parents to keep a check on the digital exposure of kids

  23. hhabeck

    This app seems like a great idea! I don’t have children yet, but I will definitely be monitoring their online use when I do have them.

  24. annaszoke

    My son is only 2 so there is no such thing as online activity for him yet, but I can’t stop thinking about how will I keep him safe once he will start using that type of technology one day. It’s great that there are apps like the one you’ve mentioned above, I’ll definitely try it, but I believe the right education on possible threats is also crucial. Especially the cyber bullying…there is a suicide almost every week now, because of it, and it’s just getting worse and worse. We have to teach our kids how to react to that and handle it 🙁

  25. Maria

    My daughter received her laptop for Christmas it took me 20 min to pick out a laptop for her but two weeks deciding on what program to use of course no program is a 100% but a program that offers this much security is worth looking into .

  26. Papri Ganguly

    Cyber security is the most important thing now days. This app is very useful to keep track children activities on internet

  27. Our Family World

    As parents, we must do our best to protect our kids from harm, especially through the use of digital media. This Protect Your Kid app is a valuable tool for parents with young children.

    This app looks promising. As it is one essential thing for every parents to watch over their kids. Kids can get distracted by technology as smartphones has reached too many hands now. But using this app for safe browsing can be a good thing we all should do. Thanks for the share.

  30. Sarah

    What a great idea for an app, at the moment we have the rule that electronics can only be played on in the lounge room or dining room where I can see what they are doing.
