9. Wind back the clockIt helps to bear in mind that the virtual world is a representation of the real world and that many apps on smartphones or other devices were inspired by earlier technology. An alarm clock can wake you up just as well as the alarm on your iPhone, that old stereo can still play you music, and hand-writing a letter is (almost) as easy as composing an email but now, due to the scarcity of penned missives, they carry much more meaning. Our electronic devices are accomplished little creatures and can perform a multitude of tasks, but they’re not the only objects that can achieve certain outcomes.
Globe trotterThe earlier you can give your child a sense of their place in the world, the more global perspective they’ll have. Cover a wall in their room with a wallpaper map or hang one above their desk where they can study the countries up close. Just don’t be surprised if they end up travelling the world the minute they leave school.Tell usHow have you given your children the spirit of adventure?
