There’s been much debate about whether or not tech is OK for young children, but some experts say it’s not as bad an influence as many think.
Technology has certainly made our lives easier in many ways, but it’s also presented a lot of challenges in certain arenas, and parenting is among them.
There’s been much debate about how much tech, if any, is ideal for those still in their early developmental stages.
Some experts, though, are now saying it’s not as bad an influence as many think.
Moderation is, of course, recommended, but also content also has a lot to do with whether handing a child an iPad will benefit or harm them in the long run.
Reading a book, for example, can be accomplished on one.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says children under the age of 2 shouldn’t have any tech access at all, but one of the experts who helped in establishing those guidelines has changed his mind.
He now says that as long as the child is presented with something that’s interactive, up to an hour a day is perfectly fine.
It’s also been proposed that giving young children tablets may actually spur their learning abilities by introducing them to an environment they can control.
What is generally agreed upon is that more research into the matter is needed.
