As parents, you have a limited time to spend on many tasks. Every situation is uniquely different, but in many cases, a digital time capsule can be a really handy in parenting. Here are five reasons parents today should use a digital time capsule:
A Digital Time Capsule is like opening the doorway that connects the ideal parenting style across time. Remember the multiple 'high-level' closed door meetings with your mother (and in-laws) over the use of pacifiers, over the relevance of 'Sarongs', and many other alien baby products that never existed in your childhood? Because there are so much wisdom in play, the best thing to do is to make sure your child doesn't lose out on these advices when the time comes for them to take on the role of being parents.
Your action plan boils down to five simple words, 'The Best Way You Can'. Parenting today has changed from how it was in the past. Factoring the environment, societal constraints, and every other complications of your time, it is essential for your child to acknowledge that you have had given him nothing but your very best.
Certainly, even we adults sometimes struggle with 'to do the right thing, or to do things right. Critical reasoning can only be effectively learned and applied when the brain is readily developed for that cognitive function. Plan ahead and be very patient.
The internet has brought us together, and yet it tears us apart. Remember the good old times when our parents were so occupied and your birthday passed with a belated wish few days later? Often times you missed sending your wishes on the 'important dates' because of work commitments and limitations (unable to use mobile phone etc). In military terms, some say 'the war is over'. And yes, you can never have that moment back.
Our brain develops over time. The same word to a 5 years old will mean differently to your child when he turns 18. Like our parents before, their voice guided how we navigate through our childhood, and their words changed the way we lead our lives.
