Quoting Ryloonjimama:" <blockquote><b>Quoting EnnaBennaBanana:</b>" Link about Ipads and young kids http: ... [snip!] ... so much conflicting information. It's just like breast feeding vs formula, circumcised vs foreskin, vaccinating vs not etc etc."
It depends on parents view.. I don't think either is right or wrong. I just do what I feel is right for my son. Personally for me, I don't allow my son to play on Ipads or any of that (he's only 3)
I do a hooked on phonics program with him, I sit with him we read our lesson and all that and then practice writing together. And after he does his lesson with me, hooked on phonics has a computer game he can play that had to do with his lesson. That's the closest I go to learning with technology right now for him. He learned how to write all his uppercase letters at age 2 and a half. He just turned 3 and is learning how to write all his lower case.
I just feel the way we do things in our house works.. and I don't feel comfortable letting him have an Ipad and play on that. He can learn with me and he is.. he's doing great.
I don't judge parents who do choose to do things differently though.
