Postcard from a mother in digital age

While everyone on the web is teaching the parents how to control and restrict children's interaction on the internet and social media, here's how a mother chose to talk to her child at home.

My dear child,

It's been a long time since we sat together and talked. Although we have been confined at home due to COVID-19 since the past few months, we are hardly away from our gadgets.

Your daddy and I are busy in our work and you are busy attending the virtual class. I know TikTok has been banned and you maybe feeling bored. With no friends to meet, no outings, and movement restricted to this house, I am sure you may be even hating this period of rest.

I am not telling you to stop using your mobile or reduce browsing. All I am saying is no matter how many people follow or unfollow you, we will be there for you. There are times when everyone feels lonely. Don't try to ignore that feeling by switching to your mobile. Come and talk to us. Until this dark night ends and you meet your friends again, let us step into their shoes.

Your maa
