I love the idea of parents being more involved in their child's digital literacy development - no different than making sure you invest time in their reading, mathematical, emotional and physical wellbeing!

Makes sense. The more we include parents in the education of their children the more social capital the children build. The question is not whether parents being involved is good. We need to figure out what that looks like in the digital world.
