Kids and technology:
Advice, ideas, inspiration

Hey—we get it. Parenting is equal parts maddening and pure, indescribable joy. And that’s usually all before 8 AM. Technology works the same way. It’s enhanced our world in ways we never thought possible. But parenting in the digital age introduces challenges and questions we didn’t see coming. Like: “Dad, can I Snapchat just for the filters?” Or: “Mom, why are you following my best friend on Instagram?”

Parents are working through this one text at a time, trying to keep up and grappling with just how much screen time is OK for their 12-year-old Fortnite champion and whether their 2-year-old should video chat with Grandma.

Through a mix of independent research, best practices from parents and a partnership with the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI), we are excited to offer a variety of fresh thinking for families and technology. As your parenting partner, we’ll answer top questions, provide guidance, and show the creative and educational potential of apps.

Parenting is a balancing act. And we’re here to keep you moving forward. At least until bedtime.
