With technological advancements, we humans have managed to get even more muddled up in our race to be the best parents ever. But it doesn’t have to be that way; at times what is required is a change of mentality and point of view when looking advancement of technology.

For some guardians today, striking a harmony between how they grew up in a time innovation was less fast paced to the now, where their own children grow up in a hyper-innovative age, can be overwhelming without a doubt. Frequently guardians must choose how dependent they will be on innovation even as technology seems to offer stress free parenting techniques like propping your child in front of a smart screen connected to a cloud server that can stream the newest sci-fi movies in 4HD (resolution 4 time better than regular high definition).

Computerized daycare

For example, a youngster having a fit of rage may be immediately quieted by a tablet, however is that the best way to deal with child rearing? It relies upon the exact circumstances and in all likelihood there will be points of contention justifying the action on both sides of the debate.

Guardians could tap innovation as even more of a solace to themselves, now and again. Take infant screens, for instance. There are applications, for example like the Baby Monitor HD that touts itself as the "cutting edge infant screen". It gives guardians "a chance to see and hear their infant from anyplace on the planet." Download the application and watch out for infant by means of an iPhone or iPad.

Technological exposure

Would guardians begin to slacken the confinements on children to a point toddlers are exposed to smart apps that can collect data on your child during unsupervised Internet time? On the off chance that these applications require information on the young and afterward is exploited using technologies like the Internet of Things, the potential danger increases, tenfold.

While most apps and app developers will not be viewed as a genuine risk to the kids, having point by point data on the youngster would be something many guardians would not eagerly impart to obscure individuals.

Children tracking devices

There has been rise of new applications from new companies which guarantee to get your kids utilizing remote innovation both indoors and outdoors.

The occurrence of a GPS tracker isn't new. However the innovation is proving to be more exhaustive and will cover more of the geography than before. Guardians could depend on this application to keep track of their charges in real time. For instance maybe if the little ones go wondering inside a sprawling shopping mall. Quick access to data of the missing wee ones will be a life saver.


Innovation, while it offers many advantages, isn’t exactly a 100 percent foolproof solution to more secure parenting practices. Guardians should measure the potential hazard against the security assurances some of these computerized period applications offer. And keeping in mind that an information break can demolish an organization's image, trading off data of your own family’s most vulnerable members could yield a great deal more disastrous result.
