Should You Be Really Exposing Your Kid To Gadgets At This Point?
Stimulation to your child’s developing brain caused by over exposure to technologies (cell phones, internet, iPods, TV), has been shown to negatively affect executive functioning, and cause attention deficit, cognitive delays, impaired learning, increased impulsivity, and decreased ability to self-regulation e.g. tantrums. Remember! Your child requires face to face time with people to develop social skills. These technologies foster interaction between your child and the screen, but not interpersonal skills.
