A mother should have a good understanding about early childhood parenting. To be able to apply good parenting, a mother should know about early childhood development. In the 4.0 industrial revolution era, mothers have easier access to information and knowledge about early childhood development by using digital communication media, such as Instagram. This research aims to explore how mothers utilize digital communication media to get the knowledge of early childhood development. It adopted the phenomenological approach with interview to five mothers. The information that they get from the digital communication media include that about children’s developmental tasks, the appropriate age to attend school, how to create educative games suitable for children’s developmental stages, and how to facilitate children to play and learn. Nevertheless, not all knowledge obtained is applied in their parenting, because the participants tend to believe that conservative parenting is the best.
