As parents we worry about the content that our children see from day-to-day. They are subjected to TV, movies, music, and online content that may be inappropriate. Even some commercials are inappropriate for young eyes. With the rise of technology this threat is even greater. Kids now have smartphones, tablets, and gaming systems at their disposal. And while we care about our children and monitor what they do we cannot be there every moment of the day.
While some parents may shy away from allowing their children ready access to technology for this reason I know that my kids have to know tech to succeed. And there are many good reasons to allow our children to use technology. Using the right educational apps builds motor skills, brain function, and can teach our kids quite a bit. Educational apps can supplement what our kids are learning in school.
With so much to worry about, there is no reason to worry about the wrong apps falling into our kids hands. But in a world of so many apps, how do you know which ones are safe for your children?
