eParenting® Little Ones


"We may not be able to prepare the future for our children, but we can at least prepare our children for the future.”                — President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Smart phones, social media, touch pads, video games, and computers are a constant presence in the lives of most families. eParenting takes a look at the ways in which these technologies can play a positive role in child development and parent-child interaction.

Developed by University of Wisconsin — Extension family living educators and specialists for parents of 0-5 year olds or “little ones, the program highlights how digital media can be used to enhance parenting skills and support kids’ growth and development. Participants will be able to

  • describe how the brains and self-regulation skills of little ones are developing,
  • summarize the parenting styles that best support this development,
  • share how digital media can be a positive parenting tool to support young children’s development.

We are sharing this Wisconsin Extension developed resource with local Atchison County families. You can access eParenting® Little Ones in two formats.

  1. Short Video Series: eParenting® Little Ones is also available as a short video series. For the video series, the curriculum has been condensed short 1-3 minutes videos highlighting specific ways technology can positively be incorporated into parenting little ones.
  2. Workshop Recording: A session of the eParenting® Little Ones 2-hour workshop was also recorded. You can watch the edited version if you are unable to attend an in-person version of the workshop.

We hope you find eParenting® Little Ones to be a valuable resource!
