The goal of Parent Dome is to become a resource for you as you navigate an expanding internet experience. Television, Smartphones, Tables, Laptops, Internet of Things, Applications, New Websites, will always be changing. What may have been assumed safe soon has a virus, exploit, vulnerability which if left unattended might be a risk you are not prepared to resolve.
Our desire is that you take each step that is appropriate for where you are and the relationship you have to technology. If you have children, it is the relationship between you, technology and the child.
If you haven’t already experienced it, you will. Kids are more attached and connected to a device than they are to a family pet. Where many parents call the devices a pet and may not know it by name, but can speak to the symptoms of nomophobia.
The best starting point begins in advance of putting technology in the hands of children. This takes the form of an agreement on who owns the device. Sets forth certain rules, benefits and defines consequences. We provide a great Agreement which is intended to be a guide.
All family dynamics are different and so are children. Use this agreement as a guide specific to each child. Most importantly is that you do this from a vantage point of under promise, over deliver. Hold true to the points enumerated in the document. In the event that enforcing the document is too hard, simply modify the document to reflect what you can or are willing to do.
