Nikki Bush: Technology Can Cause Parents and Children to Switch Roles (Video)

Tech-Savvy ParentingNikki Bush spoke to Polity about her new book, Tech-Savvy Parenting: A Guide to Raising Safe Children in a Digital World, which she co-authored with Arthur Goldstuck.

Bush says technology has altered the relationship between parents and children in a number of interesting ways, and has created “a shift in power in the world”.

“In previous generations, parents were the be-all and the end-all, they were the absolute authority,” Bush says, “and today our children often know more about the prevailing technology than we do. And so we switch roles with our children. Sometimes we are the teacher, and sometimes they are the teacher and we are the student. And we have to become comfortable with that.”
