    It is obvious that the Internet and social media have become a part of 4.0 technologies. In a survey of 2019 by the Management Development Institute (MSD) and Save the Children in Vietnam, 66.1% of children had access to an Internet-connected device of which 43,4% had an average use of 1-3 hours per day.
    There is no denying that smart devices have brought plenty of benefits in our daily life. Smartphones or tablets are considered as crucial tools for parents in feeding children, teaching and entertaining them. However, many people are concerning the impact of 4.0 technology on children’s lives. Without smartphones, children will not eat and keep crying. The question is that “Do parents need to have the courage to put their phone down or learn to live with technology especially in educating your children?
    Questions to ponder:
    How long do you let your children/ cousins/ nieces use social media? Why do you let them use media?
    What are the pros and cons of allowing children to approach the Internet at a very young age?
    In your opinion, at which ages can children use mobile phones? Can you share some tips to raise children effectively in the 4.0 era?
    Case 1: You are so busy with an urgent task but your child is crying, what will you do, will you give him/her a mobile phone/TV or do something else?
    Case 2: Anytime you do not pay attention, your child will take your phone to play games or watch YouTube, etc. what will you do?
