21st Century Parenting – Are your kids getting enough screen-time?

 Published in the Express Tribune on 1st September 2013

Wired parenting is an entirely new ballgame – savvy parents need to re-access their attitude to screen time. Unlike time spent in front of the TV, computer time may be crucial to your child’s development.

The Google generation of school kids needs a radically different set of skills. While you or I might remember trawling through encyclopedias or library books to complete school projects, generation X, Y and beyond, of course, seek answers online. Even ignoring the issue of inappropriate sites that pop up for innocent key words, they soon realize not all websites are equally reliable. Search engine optimisation techniques used by commercial sites mean that the top sites resulting from a search may be sites looking to sell you something or earn dollars from clicks. They may be sites pushing a particular agenda and may not be impartial. Students have to learn at a much earlier age to question sources, look for corroborative data and sift through misinformation. In our internet-dependent age, these may be some of the most important skills they learn in school.

The actual numbers are quite staggering. 49,500 searches are made globally every month for the term SanaSafinaz. No other designer even comes close.
