Every parent wants their bundle of joy safe and sound, both in the real and reel world. What gets difficult is constantly keeping an eye and monitoring the little ones, after all, we all lead busy lives. The best way to get peace of mind is to equip yourself with knowledge, that’s up to date and factual. Follow these steps and watch your child thrive using a PC while being safe.
1) Start from Scratch
This may seem time-consuming at first, but the end result will be worth it. First things first, set multiple users for your PC so your child doesn’t end up accessing websites not meant for his or her age. Next, go to your browser settings to add the right age filter. Lastly, bookmark PC-learning resources for faster accessibility and to ensure your child mainly goes on these websites. When exploring the internet, you can either sit with your child or make sure you can see what’s going on your child’s screen from a distance.
2) Schedule it In
A productivity technique that is guaranteed to work for your child! All you have to do is, block out time for fun and learning, so you know when your child is doing what. If 4 to 6 pm is Math’s time, then you don’t have to be as involved. Whereas, if 6 to 6.30 pm is YouTube time – you’ll be relieved of any stress if you’re at least at eye-level to your child’s PC. Whenever you’re not around, you can get elder siblings or cousins to monitor on your behalf.
3) Sit Together
This is something that every parent needs to do on a regular basis. Not only will your little one enjoy the attention you’re giving but you can also learn a thing or two together. Right from playing games together to reading articles online – as a family unit, there are many PC activities you can do. By exploring PC resources together, you’ll know what’s new and good for your child.
