With the advent of the digital age, there needs to be a calibrated approach to our children’s use of technology. The invasion of electronic means in our daily lives is inevitable. This only adds to the current set of parents’ responsibilities to acclimatize their offspring with the optimal use of technology. The ease of doing things using technology should only open more avenues to be creative and show faster results and not hijack creativity.
