Greetings dear people.
I have a word of encouragement for all parents on this platform.
After a long time spent on Digital Technologies and with my intense passionate pursuit after it, I have discovered a great field full of amazing opportunities. Interestingly, this field is still less exploited and experts have stated that only half of the available jobs would have been exploited in the tech industry by 2018 (Technovation). This gives us an idea of how much free opportunities this field has.
Worth saying is that kids and young people below 35years have a greater chance to flourish in this industry.
That is why I will love to encourage you to give your kids and young children access to digital tools, most notably a Desktop Computer. I recommend that you install a good high performance Desktop Computer in your house and give your kids 100% freedom to work with it. Also purchase a wifi modem or other Internet gadgets and make sure they have active Internet connectivity. However note that you may need to get someone to setup tracking and Internet restrictions and security on the computer in order not to expose your kids to harmful content online.
Please don’t limit your kids to use a computer. Don’t be afraid that they will spoil it, even if they spoil it, fix it and still give them access to it, and if they damage the computer beyond repair, buy a new one and still give them access to it. They can discover amazing things with it that will even beat your imagination and break records the world over.
The world is going digital and in a few decades to come, the real illiterates will be those without ICT skills. It is better to start equipping your kids toward a better future.
