Parenting a 4–8 year old

How to parent in the digital age: a parenting guide for 4–8 year old kids

From the age of four onwards, children are learning about the world by interacting with it. Time for physical activity and creativity is important for their cognitive development.

However, children of this age will have increasing amounts of tech aimed at them too. Establishing healthy digital boundaries for 4–8-year-olds can help mitigate issues with sleep problems, issues with concentration and even childhood obesity.

Being a responsible digital age parent now will help you and your family to establish a healthy relationship with technology that will set you on the right path for maintaining that throughout those childhood years.

This course for digital parenting of young children will cover topics of concern such as:

guidance on parental controls

age-appropriate apps

playing online video games

YouTube and YouTube Kids

first smartphone/ tablet

managing screen time and setting healthy digital boundaries.

The Digital Parenting Course for 4-8 years gives you access to age-specific resources and a digital community to help guide you through digital age parenting for young children.

What’s the recommended screen time for kids aged 4-8 years old

  • For kids aged between 4 and 5 years old, the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) maximum screen time recommendation is up to 1 hour a day of ‘high-quality educational programming’. The exception to this is video chatting with family members.
  • For children aged 5 and over, the AAP recommends setting consistent limits and boundaries for screen time.
  • In this digital age, it’s likely that even young ones will need screens and devices to aid their educational learning. However, screen time shouldn’t replace or interfere with the time that kids need for sleeping, eating, playing, studying, and social interactions with family and friends.

For a deep dive into the effects that screen time can have on young children, as well as useful resources on how to keep kids safe around digital devices, purchase the 4-8 years Pod.
