Information for Parents
It’s no secret that today’s parents face a barrage of digital dilemmas.
We marvel at how our kids learn to tap, swipe and pinch (before they’ve learnt to tie their shoelaces or ride a bike), but at the same time we worry about what all this screen time is doing to them.
We spent our childhoods playing outside and staring at the sky, not at screens.
Our kids’ & teens' reality is just so different.
Every day there’s a new headline warning us of the harmful effects of technology on kids and adolescence.
The scare of the “digital apocalypse” plagues us with grief and guilt about our kids' digital habits.
It’s no wonder that as modern parents, we’re riddled with techno-guilt.

Confused, concerned, feeling guilty and guessing about how to navigate this digital terrain we've found ourself in…
But who needs MORE mum guilt in her life?
