Parenting Styles & Digital Relationship with Kids

  • Authoritative parenting- high warmth and high control, e.g., parents listen to the child’s wishes, but they put clear limits on the child’s behaviors
  • laissez-faire parenting- low warmth and low control; the parents are detached from the needs expressed by the child; they did not give rules or limits to the child’s behavior
  • Authoritarian parenting- low warmth and high control; parents expect the child to obey; they neither discuss nor listen to the child’s opinions and can react with harsh discipline
  • Permissive parenting- high warmth and low control; parents are very affectionate, but they lack guidance through rules and give few limits to the child’s behavior.
  • Enabling mediation- Parents engage in different activities with the aim to enhance their child’s appropriate use of the digital technologies
  • Restrictive mediation- Parents pay strict attention to rules and control the child’s digital activities
  • The first and foremost is financial literacy. The concept of spending and earning is still an alien concept to the children, they get to know much later about that in life but by them, they have already developed money habits. Good Good Piggy aims to integrate these concepts into their life from a young age. They offer numerous amount of tasks and missions that they can complete to earn money. On the other hand, it opens the horizon of investment and charity as well. Tasks can also be indeed by the parents including how much reward money they will be receiving upon completing the task.
  • Good Good Piggy offers a lot of video catalogs on different themes for eg, financial literacy, short stories, gardening, dancing, etc. The content is verified by the team so that it does not display any inappropriate content. The videos are 2 to 4 minutes long so it keeps the screen time to a minimum. This allows you to have control over what your child view on YouTube. Similarly, you can add your own videos to the catalog and create an educational playlist.
  • The idea is to teach the kids long-term satisfaction over short-term satisfaction. If they get 2rs per task every day, by the end of the month they would have saved enough to buy the pencil colors they always wanted. It teaches them to prioritize needs over wants. The regularity of completing tasks also enhances their motor functions and learning functions depending on the nature of the assigned task.
  • These developed skills through a digital app will help your kids when they grow up a little and started using the other media platform. They would already be aware of how to get the best out of any app, and how to approach it with care and caution as the values have already been set into the child’s psyche.
  • Good Good Piggy proposes the idea of reward and reinforcement to facilitate good behavior. If the task is to spend at least 1 hour studying every day and they are awarded on task completion, the result will be that your child’s capacity to sit and study every day for at least 1 hour every day will be rigid and with time they wouldn’t need the reinforcement for that task.
