While we were chilling on the Governors island, we had a quite interested talk with other mommies.
We raised a challenging question.
How can you prevent your child from unnecessary (or even harmful) information?
I mean, internet is totally overwhelmed with porn, violent games and movies, abusive language and a lot of other absolutely useless waste. Today’s digital world is a threat.
What can we do with it? How to protect our children?
These are questions, that will remain on the front burner for a long time.
Of course we have to educate our children and form their tastes and desires. As we already know, the most important thing is environment. But our kids go to school and other extracurricular activities, where they meet new people. And this is totally out of our control.
And all those phones and tablets with unlimited access to the web…
But we are not desperate! As technologies are evolving and developing, solutions come.
I’ve found this awesome app, while I was searching how other parents deal with this problem.
It’s called eKAVACH Parental Control App and it truly is a future of digital parenting.
It’s a unique mobile parental control application for parents which offers families comprehensive safety in the online world and offers sufficient parental supervision and control over a child’s activities across various digital media to ensure focused learning outcomes and appropriate usage of social media.
