I have a two year old and a six year old and I have spent a lot of time trying to keep them off of technology. (I should point that my six year old is watching TV right now because she is on spring brake and I needed to get this done). I am not saying that I feel they should have not contact with technology but I question how young it two young sometimes. My sister gave my daughter an iPod nano for her third birthday and I was in shock. A three year old does not need an iPod. I do have to say it came in handy for long car trips. At my sons daycare two on the kids bring in iPads and share with the other kids and now all my two year old wants is an iPad (and so do I but I feel that is different). Are to days kids loosing something because of all of the technological? I am sure that we have all read about kids that don't play out side because of video games.
How much is to much? Should there be some kind of guidelines for parents? What type of non-technology things should be saved? So many questions! What do you think?
