Tech Age Kids is a blog dedicated to helping parents prepare their kids for a positive future with technology. We're running a Q&A feature on the blog until the end of March 2017 and welcome other bloggers and content creators to join us.
We'd like to invite you to write a post on your own blog / website answering at least 5 (or more which is relevant to you) of the questions below. Find out how to take part below.
Why are we doing this? In our work, we recognise parents are faced with a potentially daunting task of bringing up kids in a digital age. We would like to create an opportunity to people to think, write and discuss about the ups and downs of raising digital natives.
How to Take PartIt's really simple. Write and publish a post on your own blog / website answering at least 5 of THE QUESTIONS (see below) before 30 March 2017.
Add a link in your post to this article - Tech Age Parenting Q & A.

If you don't have a blog / website, but would still like to take part, please join our Facebook Group - Tech Age Parents, find the question in the group posts and add your comments.
