Abstract : Nowadays children can have access to all forms of entertainment, knowledge and social media platform thanks to rapid development in new digital technology. Yet new technology can be a double-edged sword: it’s a tool if used wisely, yet it also creates a wide range of social problems, such as the emergence of hackers and otaku as well as internet addiction. How to make sense of this brave new world, and to offer appropriate guidance to young people of the digital generation? The goal of this seminar is to provide parents with new perspectives on this issue so that we can help our children to become responsible internet users.
