Your child’s digital world
Why do you need to know about your child’s digital world?
Did you know that, in Qatar, 85% of our children aged 9-18 years are using the internet?
Furthermore – over half of them are using their own mobile devices. In the past accessing the web used to mean a computer and some cables, today’s children are able to enter the digital world from almost anywhere.
With that in mind, it is very important that today’s Digital Parents understand as much as possible about where our children and going and what they are doing in the digital world.
Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook – for many children in Qatar these websites and apps are part of everyday life. Here is the Vodafone AmanTECH guide to your child’s digital social world.
Music and movies
There was a time when movies meant cinemas, and music meant CDs or the radio. For our digital families, the internet gives our children access to entertainment from around the world.
Games and apps
Whether it’s the latest FIFA football game on the PlayStation or Candy Crush Saga on a smartphone, the chances are gaming in one form or another is part of your child’s digital world.
The web can be a great source of facts, figures, educational games and other resources. Digital Parents can work with their children to make the most of what the digital world has to offer.
