What Is The Right Age To Introduce Your Kids To Mobile Technology?

What Is The Right Age To Introduce Your Kids To Mobile Technology? | The 21st Century | Scoop.it
My boys love to play with their iPad. My oldest who is 4 ½ spends an average of about 45 minutes each day playing a variety of games. Some like Endless Alphabet are educational while others like Fruit Ninja, are not so much.
Susan Bainbridge's insight:

This reminds me of a similar discussion in the 70s and 80s, how much television should young children watch per day? Young humans need to bond with their Mother, then bond with the Earth, then bond with others. The argument holds true today.

Lucane's comment, August 2, 2012 6:44 AM
Indeed! I could not agree more. I find myself distracted with tecnology on many occasions and I need to keep reminding myself that the virtual world and all the screens around me should not be replacing my real life and real interactions with friends and associates. And most of all should not let my manners slip by using my phone while someone else is talking to me.
