Technology! Please don’t.

With the aid of the internet children are growing up way to fast. I was  a child of the 80’s and in my day I was happy to play outside all day with my friends and cousins, we would play hop scotch, skipping rope, police and thieves or dress up,  read a book or watch some cartoons. Our imagination was our playground. now everything has changed.

My little cousins just like other children of today  barely step out of the house to play, they would rather play these games with each other or by themselves on a on mobile phones, tablets or PC’s. Send texts all day, or surf the internet, but to be fair a few of them actually study and find out new facts to helping them develop physically and mentally. Acquiring knowledge is one of the best things a child can have but to what extent? Some of the information they stumble upon while browsing, I didn’t find out till I was an early teen. Some of this information can be helpful as well as harmful based on how the child interprets it.

Technology has benefited us a lot. It has brought hope to curing terminal diseases like cancer, it has made education easier and accessible from anywhere through distance learning, easy communication with family and friends through text, videos and calls… It basically influences our every move.

Children learn so much now at such an early age which allows them to grow up quickly. Childhood used to be so long in a fun way but now it seems rushed and they grow up so quickly. knowledge they say is power, but I say too much of everything at the wrong time is bad.

Technology  please don’t rob our children of their childhood, but that’s not my point. Its not the fault of technology if it is being misused. It is the responsibility of us as individuals, family and society to protect our children.

Protect your children, let them enjoy their childhood, they have so many years to be an adult, let us not deprive them by influencing the robbery of their innocence.

Living and working in this digital era, our social media accounts – from Facebook, Twitter, Flickr to the likes of Pinterest – are increasing not only in number but also in volume. Additionally, many of us have domain names registered and libraries of movies, digital music and e-Books that can be of significant value. And let's not forget about Bitcoin and other virtual currencies! For the majority of us, these accounts and digital assets are likely to outlive us. And when we die, it is left up to family members and estate executors to sift through them all. Furthermore, even though they may have all the required passwords necessary for these accounts, many heirs will discover that they have no clear authority to access, or even to manage, the online accounts of their deceased loved ones. With the value of individuals' digital assets globally measured in the hundreds of billions of dollars, planning for the protection of our digital assets has moved to centre stage. It is essential that our online and social media accounts are included as part of the estate planning process. Failure to do so may not only deprive those we leave behind of fond memories and (possibly) a little nest egg, it could also leave us vulnerable to postmortem identity theft if fraudsters get to use our personal details to apply for credit facilities whilst our accounts remain unguarded. Planned Departure resolves these issues. We provide you with the ability not only to protect your digital assets, but also to clearly indicate who can access your online accounts and who should benefit from them. Create piece of mind today by registering with us in one quick and easy process.
