As a parent, you might be wondering what apps and games are age appropriate for your child. How you can help your child enjoy technology and media in a balanced and safe way? FCPS recommends a four-pronged approach for supporting children. This approach will help your child become a smart, safe and balanced user of technology. Parents using the four-pronged approach will:

  • Establish expectations by developing and enforcing media and device plans with their children.
  • Select and use age-appropriate media (games, apps, videos, books, etc.).
  • Use parental controls to support your child.
  • Mediate your child’s technology use by using it with them.
