living in a digital world

To do and not to do. That is the question… Technology has surely shown us all the good and not-so-good sides of it. There is no doubt technology has helped us as a society, especially during COVID-19.

One of those dangers is the damaging effect of blue light emission from our computers, phones and any other screens. When it comes to blue light emission, our children are at a higher risk. Some exposure to blue light can be healthy, such as when it comes from the sun, because it can increase attention span, reaction time and positive mood. However, too much exposure can cause negative effects such as digital eye strain or retina damage, both…

If it happens in person, make note of the time and day, where it happened and who else was around to see it. If it happens online, always take screenshots before deleting the post or blocking the person. TECH As YouTube becomes more appealing to a younger audience, it’s more crucial than ever to monitor the content your child is watching and uploading. Create a family account so you can…
