Parenting in a Digital Era
(Mar 28, 2016 ; Summary by ; Article by Mother's Niche Blog)
Parenting in a digital era has its challenges. As a working mother who is driven and often distracted by the constant connection to work and social platforms, I have caught myself tuning into the screen rather than my children's faces. There have been times even when my kids were demanding my attention, and I found myself unable to disconnect from the technology in my hands. Distracted parenting has caused some real strife in my relationships with my children.
When my children were young it was easier to set up "dates" and to go out and connect with them. While reading this blog post, it reaffirmed my need to put down the device. While technology can add a lot of enjoyment, convenience, and education it can never replace what we as humans need, to know we are loved and feel a connection with those around us.
I hope you enjoy this authors post and make time to enjoy your children.

Caution should be used when deciding to rely on this as your internet babysitter there is never a better supervision than the watchful eye of a concerned parent.
