What do you see when you frame your family’s computer with your fingers and squint? Seurat’s Sunday on La Grand Jatte? A chaotic Jackson Pollack? A Steve Jobs original? A Disney collectible? Munch’s The Scream?
It’s likely no two parents will agree on what having technology in the picture looks like to a child’s social, educational, emotional and physical development.
For example, a reasonable amount of social time online for an only child may be different than for a child who has multiple siblings with which to interact. How do you need to frame and position your family’s use of technology so that it allows them to thrive? It’s easy to be the critic–much harder to be a curator.
