Abstract
This study purposes to obtain parents’ perception in digital era related to children’s social skills. In 4.0 Era, the younger generation is prompted to use gadget more often. It happens in this digital era when children play with gadgets while sitting or lying down at home. This leads them to do fewer physical activities and they prefer to communicate through social media rather than with their parents. In addition, parents have important rules to take care of their children during their early development. This study used survey of parents and their children in East Java, in order to find out the prevalence of parents’ perception of children’s social skills. This study revealed that excessive usage of gadgets gave the worse impact of children’s social skill and physical growth. Most of parents perceived that gadget affects children’s social skill but they could not overcome the excessive usage of gadgets on their children. It has an implication of physical and social activities on early childhood. Additionally, parenting is crucial to supervise children about time management of children’s activities and to monitor their social development.
