With the exponential rise of technology in the lives of our youngest citizens, the benefits are tremendous. But most of the products are not made with the ultimate health and well-being of children in mind. As childhood obesity soars, fast food ads follow our kids 24/7 and tech addiction is being taken seriously, we need to wake up to this unhealthy reality. A child's digital life is being tracked and data is being collected. We need new interventions for parents and more co-operation from Big Tech.
Just For The Children aims to inform, re-assure, and equip parents and educators so they can minimize the risks. They can take advantage of the benefits of tech and also be given more transparency. We also advocate for humane, ethical tech and more fitness programs, interventions and policies, to improve the quality of life for society's youngest.
