Digital solutions and technology play an important role in children’s lives, especially in the 21st century. Looking at the ages of children using digital devices on a daily basis we can see that the age bracket is getting younger. This proves just how important digital solutions are towards the education and healthcare sectors for children.
Looking at a baby sleep schedule one can think back at how things were done before the rise and development of digital solutions and technology. With sleeping schedules and methods, there were always many factors that made parenting and teaching difficult. Now, we are in the digital world, and we can easily solve many problems with digital solutions.
Many sleeping devices have helped parents, educators, and pediatricians to care for babies, infants, and toddlers in a more promising manner. No more struggling with difficult sleeping methods, advice, and books.
Looking at how fast technology has been growing, there are still many countries that don’t have all the technology and digital solutions that are found in all the developed countries. This brings great concern towards how inequalities are still present and prevent the most vulnerable children from receiving the best education and healthcare with digital solutions.
Although digital solutions can make everything easier in healthcare and education for children, we still need to look at how technology needs to be balanced in the life of children. It is important for children to still be active and take up sports and physical activities.
Digital solutions, especially when being present in developing countries, need to be balanced with education towards the upkeep and protection of these children and technology. Technology can expose children to major security risks. Children need to be educated on building knowledge, skill, and resilience to identify and manage digital risks and problems that might arise.
