Technology Time For Siblings of Different Ages

Digital and technology expert Dr Kristy Goodwin answers ParentTV members question: “As a parent of three young children (7, 4 and 1) I am beginning to see difficulties in ensuring they are all exposed to age-appropriate media. My concern is that while we were strict with our oldest child about the television and movies he watched, as he ages this is becoming more challenging to prevent his younger brother watching material that is appropriate for our eldest but not for him. Though our children do not yet have a games system, this is planned to occur for my eldest when he reaches 10. However, our second child will, therefore, have access at 7. Obviously, this issue will continue to occur. What are some tips and suggestions to combat this and to ensure that children of all ages are able to access age-appropriate materials without impacting on siblings?”
