Should I Buy My Kids a Tablet?
My son and SD are both 6, almost 7. We have all heard of the great benefits of these devices, and how they can help children learn important skills, like writing, multiplication and problem solving. Plus my kiddos have been asking for one, since most of their class mates have one.
My husband and I are not concerned about our kiddos spending too much time on electronic devices or in front of a computer screen, because we can set the ground rules and limitations. Also the price tag of a tablet does not concern us, because we can get a relatively inexpensive one for under $100, with parental controls.
My question is, is this too much, to soon? Or is this just the way things are now?
