Children and Technology


Many people seem to be amazed when they see a toddler using an ipad.  They think, “Wow! She’s so little and can flick through photos or play a game.” Or perhaps they will comment on how kids today are so much more advanced than we were.  However, the reality is that an ipad or a smart phone is very easy to use.  Learning how to send a tweet might seem like an accomplishment to an old guy but the reality is that the learning curve is not very steep.  For a child, learning how to open a book, grasping a crayon properly, trying to draw a circle, drawing a three or four more circles in that circle and calling it “Mom” is much more difficult than putting her finger on a blinking light.

Popular technology will only get simpler, your child will not get left behind, let her learn the ‘hard’ way.
