A Strong Majority of parents recognize need to provide in-home tools for learning
NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In 2023, parents, grandparents and caregivers recognize the need to teach beyond typical academics when raising young children, according to a survey by Nanos and LuvBug Learning. Children's emotional development is critical, which is concerning since interactive tools promoting resilience, self-awareness and self-regulation are greatly lacking. Nanos and LuvBug Learning surveyed more than 1,200 Americans, confirming the clear need for interactive educational tools in the home to assist with the emotional development of children aged 4 to 10.
The data overwhelmingly shows that parents want and need tools, in the home, to assist in the emotional growth of their children.
- 95%* - over nine in ten Americans say it is important or somewhat important for parents to provide tools at home for children to learn emotional development to reduce mental health risks later in life.
- The highest rankings came from the Midwest at 94.1%, females 93.6 and 55-plus at 92.8%.
- 93%*- Nine in ten Americans say it's important or somewhat important for parents to have tools to teach children emotional development with an emphasis on self-image, self-worth and self-regulation.
- The highest rankings came from the Midwest 88.7%, females 89.6% and 55-plus 88.5%
- 89% - almost 9 in 10 say that young children having access to interactive educational tools at home would have a positive (42%) or somewhat positive (43%) impact on their academic performance.
- The highest rankings came from the Midwest 87.4%, females 85.4% and 55-plus 88%
"You have to raise your kids online the same way you raise them offline, by thinking about what your values are offline and mirroring those same values online. Choose screen time based on connection, growth and creativity. Try to be thoughtful and mindful about what screen time is valuable, making it more about quality, than quantity." adds Dr. Jodi Gold, MD, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist and Author of Screen Smart Parenting
Overall, the statistics in all regions of the country, between males and females and all age groups were close. This reflects the overwhelming desire and perception that proactive tools are valuable and needed to assist parents, grandparents, and caregivers at home to help guide emotional development in young children, a segment often overlooked when it comes to discussions on overall parenting.
