Children require parent’s guidance in each phase of their life, especially in the case of exploring the perks of the internet online. Therefore, allowing them to have their personal smart phone is not such a huge deal only if parents vouch to monitor and guide the young minds of their kids. Letting your children know about positive and negative aspects of technology is of utmost importance.

Children should not be prohibited to use digital apps only because of a handful of cons which might come from using the internet and electronic gadgets. Kids should be permitted to be familiar with the perks of the internet, digital apps and technology. However, when they are allowed to make use of gadgets, they should be properly guided how to use them for good reasons and what activities should be avoided. They should be restricted to use their gadgets for exploring any adult content. All this is possible with the help of digital monitoring apps.
