The other day I said “Don’t punch your weenies!” and as I walked away I thought, seriously…did I just say that?
When it comes to raising boys, I can’t believe I have to say these things but apparently you do.
Here are five things I never thought I would say...
1. “Put the mouse back in the house!” (If you have boys, you ALL know what I am referring to!)
A while a go, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg appeared in a video about coding via the group Code.org (you can watch the video here). It’s a well put together video on the benefits of coding for kids.
Recently I have found myself talking to my almost 4 year old about people dying and death. I suspect it’s partly because we (and I mean, me, my husband and our two kids) play Skylander Giants.
There are many components within technology - and two major ones that both governments and companies struggle with is online privacy and data.
As a parent, it is important to me that the companies my kids interact with are following online privacy guidelines. This also applies to non-educational technology and data.
I hear this question a lot from my oldest son, who is kindergarten. He’s been saying it for about a year now. I have tried to recall where he got it from and I’m not sure, potentially from his old daycare but who knows.
If you were like my family this holiday season, you probably purchased some type of video gaming system - which means now is a great opportunity to start a dialogue on video games.
Parents often wonder “Will my child play too much? Are video games really bad for my kid?” With this is mind, here are my experiences and guidelines on some genres of video games.
These days it seems I’m always entering a password for something online. Back in June, LinkedIn was attacked and I’m pretty sure my password was compromised.
This year is a bit different for my family. We’re going to Disneyland for Christmas which I think I’m more excited about than the kids.
If you're like me, you’ll probably buy at least one or two gifts online during the holiday season.
Why? Because it's easy, quick and you can do it in your PJs with a cup of tea. I know lots of moms who are only doing online shopping this year.
Now that my son is in kindergarten at a digital school, my family and I are becoming more exposed to online learning resources.
