Step 2: The next step is to go into your kid's account and find a message from SpyX. Religiously follow the instructions in the message and sign in to your control panel. Finally, install the software on the targeted device.

Parents should interact with their kids and tell them about the benefits of physical activities. For example, with a setup of the daily routine of going to the park, their screen time will diminish automatically.

3. Keeping Your Child Active

 

Being a parent, you are the head of the family. From day one, kids should know that you are the boss. That doesn't mean to smother them; they should follow the rules. These rules must have something to keep your kids active. You can make them join the gym, swimming, or any sport that will help in boosting your child's health and overall behaviour.

4. Construct A Bond With Your Kid

 

As your kid grows, so is your relationship with him. It is developed from the beginning. Try to indulge yourself in your kids' activities. Play games together physically as well as on devices. This way, you will have an eternal bond with them, and your relevance will encourage them, even in their teens, to be connected with you.

Part 3. How Can Parents Combat The Negative Impacts Of Technology

Technology has gains and losses just like any other thing. Where we seek advantages from this, it is simultaneously affecting our generation. It is parents' and teachers' duty to give them a track that takes them to their final destination successfully. Following are some ways to help you avoid a negative impact on your child.

 

1. Solitude Avoid

Your child should not be using the device unattended or in isolation. The Internet is like a sky, and the sky's the limit. Leaving your child alone and without proper guidance will have a disaster in your life. For proper development of their mental and physical health, kids should know they cannot use the device without your consent.

 

2. Join Or Be Part Of

Be a part of what they are playing or doing. You can watch television together, listen to music, participate in the discussion, or play any board game. You become friends with them, which will pay you back in the long run where in future, they will discuss all their matters with you.

3. Be Reasonable

Try to be reasonable with your kids. Please do not force them to follow hard and fast rules. For example, most parents are against technology; that can be a good idea for a kid under two years but not for grown-up kids. Plus, kids should be relevant; otherwise, their peer group will mock them for lack of knowledge, leading to many mental health issues.

 

4. Watchdog

You cannot leave your child unattended and unmonitored. Keep an eye on them but make sure not to let them know about it. Give them wings to fly but keep the leash in your hand.

 

5. Kids Are No Robots

Remember, you cannot install or uninstall anything in your kids' brain. They are not robots. Each childhood experience impacts the development of your kids' personalities. Just make sure they are holding the rope tightly.

 

6. Encourage Creativity And Imagination

A room for creativity and imagination can be left when being the parent; you encourage it. When your child shows you his imagination, try to recognise it. Most kids make a lot of mess while creating their imaginary world, don't scold them for making a mess. Instead, encourage them to be imaginative?

 

Part 4.Conclusion

Technology is everywhere, from getting up to your alarm to having a good sleep at night. Technology has overtaken everything. Positives of anything are beneficial, while negatives are always harmful. Every parent should keep their kids under observation yet undetected. It is the most reliable way to succeed.
