Parenting in the Digital Age

There’s no denying that being a parent has changed a lot in the past 20-30 years. Since most teens tend to stay in front of a gadget instead of going outside and play, it can be very hard for a parent to use the same approach as a few decades ago.

Being a parent nowadays can be overwhelming especially since it can be very hard to limit our kids when it comes to smartphone usage. Such devices have become a necessity and while they do a lot of good, they can also harm kids as well.

It can be hard to find the perfect balance between being a great parent all while offering your child the freedom he wants. And with the digital addiction being one of the major issues that teenagers have to face nowadays, it can be very challenging for a parent to find the right approach in this digital age.

We thought long and hard about parenting in the digital age here at Family Orbit and with that in mind we created our latest Infographic. Here you can find out more about teens and smartphones, what digital addiction means for kids, what sexting does to them and how online predators can affect their lives! At the end of the Infographic you can also find some of the best digital parenting techniques that will help you keep your child safe, techniques that will help you obtain incredible results in a short amount of time.  Infographic provided by http://blog.familyorbit.com/
