We all want to protect our families. Now, with the ever-changing landscape of the web and the exploding use of mobile devices, it’s important to make it a safer, more constructive space for everyone. It’s especially important for our children, who rely on the internet for everything from homework to socialization.
That’s why Comcast is teaming up with Mom Enough to help parents and their families understand the challenges and opportunities inherent with today’s technology, and the importance of managing screen time in the home to everyone’s benefit.
Marti Erickson & Erin Erickson are the mother-daughter co-hosts of Mom Enough, an insightful online resource exploring the many facets of motherhood and parenting in today’s world. Working together with a wide array of experts, they help parents confront the daily joys and struggles of helping kids grow up well – from balancing work and family, to considering the big questions of how society views and values mothers and mothering.
When it comes to technology, Wi-Fi has become one of the most valuable resources both in and out of the home. It connects all our favorite experiences, helps us communicate like never before, and powers an increasing number of innovative gadgets, devices and appliances.
As connectivity becomes the center of the digital home, Comcast is redefining what people can expect from their internet experience through Xfinity xFi, a digital dashboard to manage all Wi-Fi connected devices. Families want to connect and control the products and devices in their home quickly and easily, and xFi gives parents a simple, easy-to-use digital dashboard to help make that possible.
Recently, Marti and Erin sat down for a conversation with several Twin Cities moms, all from different backgrounds, but each having the same kinds of concerns and questions about keeping their families safe and healthy when using technology in the home. You can watch highlights of that conversation at the link below and be sure to check out the managing screen time tip sheet too.
