Today’s kids are most likely to be found sitting in front of some kind of screen. That is not really something good, I guess, but that is what technology has brought to our lives and we have to deal with it the best way we can. Maybe it is not the greatest decision to ban our kids of using gadgets, but at least we can teach them some safe internet habits and do some things to prevent the wrong use of their smartphones.
I don’t really like to talk about using gadgets, because lots of parents would judge me because of things I do, but I will say it now. I let my two-year-old use our tablet. She has it on a ‘Kids mode’ – she can open kids songs on Youtube and play or draw in kids-friendly applications that we downloaded for her. She doesn’t play on it all day long, but when I need few minutes for myself, I give her the tablet. There. We can move on now.
