Digital Citizenship: Establishing Expectations at Home (Fairfax County Public Schools)
A Four-Pronged Approach to Supporting Your Child’s Technology Use
As a parent, you might be wondering what apps and games are age-appropriate for your child. How you can help your child enjoy technology and media in a safe way? FCPS recommends a four-pronged approach for supporting children. This approach will help your child become a smart, safe and balanced user of technology. Parents using the four-pronged approach will:
- Establish expectations by developing and enforcing media and device plans.
- Select and use age-appropriate media (games, apps, videos, books, and other media types).
- Use parental controls to set limits.
- Support your child’s technology use by using it with them.
