As we pack up the Christmas tree and pop the champas on another rendition of “Auld Lang Syne”, it’s time to reflect on the year that was. I hope it was a good year for you. If it wasn’t so great, I hope you found the love and support from those close to you to get you through and face happier times ahead.
I hope your kids enjoyed their year and I hope you got through another year of parenting relatively unscathed and able to relish in the good as well as face up to the challenges. If your child is a toddler starting to swipe an iPad, a preschooler learning their letters with the aid of an app, a primary school child heading off to school with a new device in their bag or a teenager taking selfies, connecting with friends, learning to code, writing a blog or just playing Minecraft and COD, then hopefully I have been able to offer you some valuable information, strategies and understanding to help keep it under control.
Here are just some of the most popular digital parenting posts from 2014.
So there are just some of the posts I have written this year as we endeavour to understand this new world that does often appear so vastly different to the world we knew as a child. We can, however, continue to parent based on the same values and principals as before. We just need to keep learning and gaining perspective, remaining connected to our kids, relevant to their world and the very best teacher and supporter they have, in order to guide them through the opportunities and the challenges of the modern world.
