Smart parenting in the digital age – A how-to guide for parents with children aged 0-8 – HUNGARIAN

“We help our children to tie their shoelaces (neatly). To cross a busy road (safely). And to explore in the park without getting hurt (…mostly).

Children also need our help with the digital world. From staying safe on social media, to finding the games that help to develop their brains in positive ways, and enable them to have fun. This guide helps you to think more about raising children in a digital age.

We’ve broken it down into five easy steps, so that you can take the time to focus on what matters – Your child. Keeping them safe. Helping them learn and grow.”

Tips for reading e-books with your children

Many parents worry that screen time will replace bedtime and we will grow an ‘appy generation’ reaching out for Talking Tom Cat rather than mummy’s warm hand at reading time. When it comes to advising parents, we need to draw on research rather than ideological guidance. There are layers of decision-making related to the content and context of reading digital books with young children.

As part of their assignment, Edlab students developed a series of questions about digital reading for parents (which the parents answered in a questionnaire) and for researchers (which I partially answer in the video). In this blog, Natalia Kucirkova highlights some of the questions and answers they discussed as part of this project.
