My son is 3 years old. He has been using iPad from past one year. He is growing wise in all the aspects associated with iPad. His motor skills are developing well due to some of the child friendly apps on iPad meant for this purpose. His intellectual ability is growing excellently and he can now solve a few simple puzzles which I think he would have not done at this age if he was not exposed to iPad. I don't think he is addicted to the gadget since he obeys us(parents) when asked not to use it. But off late I have been wondering if we should actually give him the gadget or not. We analyzed a lot about the advantages and the disadvantages. A disciplined use of the gadget seems okay. What do you have to say? Please advice. Do you allow your kids to use gadgets/any gadgets?

Actually Kim, it was a legitimate psychological study and was part of my broader psychological studies both in general pscyhology and educational psychology. Yes, the brain chemistry and neural pathways are permanently changed, and there was neurological evidence of this, and a contributing factor was screen time, and the TYPE of screen time a child had. More than one study has been produced on the issue. I am not, however, going to go into it further because I don't think we need to take over the OP's thread with a debate on the issue.

we don't have any and probably won't get any. Not only do we not have the money for it, it's not something we place much value in. My kids are good with crayons, clay, blocks, leggos, etc. And I do agree with Jodi- if you have the money to buy that stuff and want it, in moderation for kids it's fine, as long as you're working with them.

Ok, firstly, unless he is ALSO learning to use a pencil, crayon, and spending time drawing, he is NOT developing his motor skills. Different muscles are used to type, point, click, touch the screen than are used to control a pencil, so spending large amounts of time on an iPad and pretending it is developing his motor skills is burying your head in the sand ( I say *you* in the general sense, because you haven't mentioned how long he spends on it and I am addressing the issue, not necessarily your specific situation).



Secondly, the very pace that technology sets these days is changing the chemistry of our children's brains so that they end up not being able to concentrate for long periods. There are studies that it may be contributing to an increase in reports of ADHD and the like because it requires a different interaction in the brain than traditional activities, and ultimately, is changing the way our children's brains operate. The jury is still out as to whether this is something to be concerned about.



It is incredibly important for you to still interact with him. This is how our children develop their literacy and language skills, their social skills (and ability to interact with others), and their creative skills. All of these are very important, which is why it is recommended that we limit the screen time available to our children.



So in answer to your question, yes, I have let my children play with gadgets (be it my iPhone, a Nintendo DS, a Leapfrog Explorer), but I have ensured this is balanced with other activities and I do not rely on it for my child/childrens' overall development. I don't think we can deny that their skill on these things are the way of the future, but I think we should also be very careful to ensure that there is balance.

I have plenty of gadgets here and a 4year old who loves them. I would advise all moms to look up the problems they cause. Cell phones have been known to increase the risk of brain cancer. There are waves of a sort being transmitted as we use the phones. These same waves are transmitted in the iPod or iPad. I don't want my beautifully developing child to get damaged by these items, but I do not want him to be behind in technology either. We do not let him play with cell phones at all, since the known risk is there. We do allow him to sit at a solid wood table and play on the iPod or iPad for 30 minutes or so once or twice a week. I had fallen for one of those late night shows that talk about how a man's parts could be damaged by simple laptop use. I wont let my growing boy put any gadgets in his lap. I like technology and we cannot keep our kids from technology, but while they are young it us our job to limit their exposure to known hazards. I want him to learn, but 30 minutes is enough. I am a bit overprotective. I have too many playmates with families living with autism, a brain disorder, and I don't want to take any chances. I think our children will grow up in a totally different world where handwriting will not be judged, but I want my son to be good at it anyway so we are enjoying the crayons, markers pens pencils paper scissors and such that add a wellsping of creativity to the mind that iPad can not offer.

Do some research. There are lots of studies that say limit screen time of any kind. It has more to do with creating ADD and ADHD brains than motor function.
As with anything to less is more.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I have an IPad and no my 4 year old son does not use it! Let children be children for goodness sakes! Let them play outside, make believe, color, draw pictures, etc! Stop making kids grow up so fast. At the rate some moms are going, you will be footing the bill for all kinds of expensive electronic devices by the time these kids are 6!! Why, because you think it's cool? Save the technology for your kids for later, when they are teens! This is another reason why some kids are overweight, because they are sitting in front of games and computers instead of being physically active by playing the old fashioned way!

nowadays it is almost impossible for children not to use gadgets. With supervision, I don't see anything wrong with it.

I think in moderation gadgets aren't a bad thing.

My son is 4 and my daughter is nearly 3 and they have limited access to my iphone. I have downloaded a few educational games (matching, alphabet, colours, numbers, puzzles, that sort of thing) that they love playing.
They always have a wii, which they have limited access to as well (1/2 hr max) and it's not an everyday thing, and each have their own age appropriate learning laptops with educational games. My son has a cars one with a qwerty keyboard. It's full of games to improve, language, maths and problem solving skills, his favourite is the typing game, again he has a time limit.

Kids still need to learn basic reading, writing and creativity skills. The gadgets take up maybe 1hr to 1hr 1/2 a week, we spend most of our days reading, colouring,writing, drawing, jigsaw puzzles, play doh, card games (memory match, where you lay the cards face down, turn the cards over, remember where the cards are to find a matching pair) or playing outside

My kids (I have 3 - aged 6, 4 and 1 going on 2) all have iPod. It keeps them quiet and busy while i attend to other things. I control what they watch or use it for as I only download acceptable apps and tv shows (Sesame street etc). I stopped paying for cable and that's all they've got and they're happy. We (my husband and I) both own I pads which we can connect to the TV and watch with the kids. They are wonderful devices and I love the fact that I can control what my kids are exposed too. When I get a breather at work, I can face time with the kids and visually check on their nanny. My husband learnt to spell on wooden slates and now he uses a laptop for work, your kids are learning all this on an Ipad, who knows what they'll use when they enter the workforce. But like my husband, the devices may change but the content and the lessons stay with you.

Jodi, I'm curious, do you have a special needs child and are intimately versed on what ADHD encompasses as far as the psychological community is concerned and how it is now and will be addressed in the DSM? If not and although I commend your efforts at being an informed parent, you are only seeing an extremely small sample of research that exposed "normal" children to an inordinate amount of TV, video games, etc. Did those studies continue to follow the children's progress and brain activity/chemistry for months or even years after exposure when they returned to a typical home environment and school that did not include continuous TV/computers? Does the research indicate whether the brain chemistry went back to a "normal" state or if the children were permanently "damaged"? Where I'm going with this is that there is a HUGE difference between a true diagnosis of ADHD and one based on a study. ADHD is an umbrella diagnosis used for insurance purposes that includes motor and sensory disorders, learning deficits, speech and language delays, and various cognitive difficulties, etc. These are all caused, first and foremost, by problems during fetal development in the brains chemical and pathways makeup and secondly by brain trauma/injury. They are permanent brain disorders that will never go away but can be improved, even significantly, with various forms of therapy. Watching too much TV or playing too many video games does not CAUSE ADHD or permanent brain damage. With that being said, and we both agree, is doing that kind of activity 8-10 hours a day beneficial for any child, definitely not. Should the 3 yr old keep using the IPad in moderation, definitely. It’s just very frustrating that even informed and well intentioned parents don’t understand the true meaning of ADHD and think it is caused by all sorts of things because of a study. It’s actually kinda sad and funny at the same time if you use the analogy of a lab rat that’s given “x” at a 1000 times the normal limit and they get cancer, ergo the average human will get cancer from ingesting “x”. Research and studies are great but they also need to be balanced with real life and true experiences. Make sense? :-)

Honestly, we live in a digital age and these things are not a bad thing. As along as there is teaching and educational value, I think apps for kids is a great teaching tool. One of the blogs I subscribe is called Jump Into A Book. They have a featured called "Appy-Hour" every friday and it showcases a learning app for kids: http://www.jumpintoabook.com/2012/06/the...

Another blog (Audrey Press) has Free eBook Friday if your kids like reading on the iPad or iPhone. Here's the latest one: http://www.audreypress.com/blog/2012/06/...

I have an intellectually disabled 7 year old and I wish that iPads had been around when he was little. His teacher recommended it to us as he was using one at school and doing really well with it. We let him and all 5 of his siblings use it it is an awesome learning tool. I believe that moderation and supervision is key, I like to get on it occasionally myself lol. But it's also a great reward! If my kids do their written work or homework, they can play on the iPad. If they don't, no iPad time.

Like anything else, technology is fine in moderation, and with parent supervision. My son, who is now 8, has always had access to our technology -Leapster, my smartphone, my computer, IPad, etc. For Christmas last year, he got his own Kindle, and he is allowed to download apps himself. BUT, every night, before we read together (from actual books as well as kindle ones) I look at what he's been doing on it, and what apps he's loaded. If something is not appropriate, we discuss why I feel that way, and then I delete it. We also have a summer policy of no screen time between 12 and 6 at our house. No tv, computer, iPad/iPod, kindle, or even cell phone unless someone calls me. (yes, the rule applies for grown ups, too!)

I don't know if this approach would work for all families, but it has worked for us. I only have one child, so I am able to devote a lot of time to talking things out with him. Also, we have always mixed in the traditional things, too - puzzles, books, drawing, lots of legos, board games, etc. It seems to have worked out; at the end of the school year he tested as very gifted!

"you cannot get ADD or ADHD by the YALE school or medicine, Harvard or Princeton research or from your all mighty PARENTS magazine from too much TV too many video games...this is a true disorder that is misunderstood by media but not FACT."



Staci, have you seen the research on the way the brains of new generations of children have changed in their chemical activity, and much of this is being accredited to the way in which video games, TV and screen time? It has resulted in shorter attention spans and inability to concentrate, etc. These are actual research papers. I have read them. There have been quite a number of psychological studies on the issue. Basically, if you expose a child to too much of this type of activity when they are very young, it changes the development of their neural pathways, and this can, in turn, lead to various consequences, ADD/ADHD being one of them. I don't happen to have the study in front of me, and I am not sure if it is available on the internet, but it is incredibly interesting and has been considered by scientists as perfectly credible. It wasn't from any "almighty parenting magazine" (very little of anything I have to say is, because I don't think I've ever actually picked one up). It was a piece of psychological compilation.



This is not to say it is THE cause, just that it is, in all probability, ONE cause.



That is also not to say that in moderation, it isn't a good thing. I absolutely don't have a problem with my kids using such gadgets within limits and boundaries, but it is important that we are aware that the younger the child, the more effect exposure to video games and TV (and the fast moving images, etc) have on the neural connections our children are developing.

I am a kindergarten teacher and I have 6 year old twin boys that have developmental delays in speech and motor skills. They are in a special language kindergarten to get them on par with other kids their age. Both the speech therapist and the classroom teacher allow the kids in the class to use an iPad IN MODERATION. I personally see nothing wrong with allowing kids to use technology as long as it's coupled with some time for creative, hands- on play. We have 3 iPads floating around my school that were donated. Teachers use them as they see fit. It is the direction we are headed in... Why not expose your little one to it? Just do so in moderation and set boundaries with him before you hand it over. I have my own personal iPad that my kids use everyday. My twins each get 15 min on it and my 10 yr old daughter gets 30 min on it unless she is studying for a test using flash cards that I made on the iPad. Then her time varies. Needless to say, their time is always educational.

You may be able to find Tumble Books on it through your local library's link. These are animated stories that are read to the child. Also, try starfall.com to introduce the alphabet and sounds. Good luck. I'm sure whichever way you decide to go will be the right choice for your family. :)

I completely agree with Jodi. My daughter at 2.5 years old was putting 48 piece puzzles together the old fashioned way. It saddens me that so much has been lost to technology these days. I go out to dinner and often see a child plopped in front of some sort of a gadget instead of having a conversation with his/ her parents. I guess that's a whole other topic of its own.

My point is, allowing our children to draw, color, read, etc. just as we did growing up shouldn't be a thing of the past. Teaching my daughter without the use of an electronic device allows her imagination and self confidence to grow, teaches her patience and most of all gives me quality one on one time with her.

you cannot get ADD or ADHD by the YALE school or medicine, Harvard or Princeton research or from your all mighty PARENTS magazine from too much TV too many video games...this is a true disorder that is misunderstood by media but not FACT. There are 3 -4 types of HYHD that 3 out of the 4 have NOTHING to do with hyper activity. Most remembering, focus, social connection issues. It's not a lot different than autism. But their problem is from the brain, a connection problem in the brain or a chemical imbalance that blocks parts of the brain as early as 3.

My daughter (2.5) uses an iPad every once in a while. Honestly I've found wooden puzzles and books to be better. None the less it is really nice to be able to pull out the iPad and put on a book or game when I know she's going to have to wait around for more than 5 minutes for something.

I find the worry over radiation from devices to be BS. You get more from the sun. All radio, infrared, ultraviolet, x-rays, gamma, it is all light. Only once you get into Ultraviolet and beyond do things cause issues. But nothing emitted from any every day electronic device is going to cause issues unless you are sensitive to the minor change in air pressure it causes. I think it comes from people hearing the word radiation and thinking that automatically means it is dangerous.

Something no one so far has mentioned is that some people are concerned about various emissions that may be coming from different electronic devices, and possibly be a factor in causing cancer and other problems. (I'm no expert, so I'm not even sure if it's radio waves, radiation, or whatever the concern is.) I know in our area some people want wireless internet taken out of schools due to concern about this kind of exposure. Also, a lot of people have been screaming because the electricity company recently went to "smart meters" that send meter information to the company via radio waves. I personally don't know enough about it to have a strong opinion, but if people are so concerned about things like this, I would think that we would want to seriously limit our toddlers' exposure, especially as they would be the most vulnerable.



Other issues have already been raised, and I think are very valid concerns. Toddlers need to be developing gross motor skills, social skills, and verbal skills, none of which will come from these electronic devices. As for intellectual development, the experts tell us that the best thing we as parents can to for them is to read to them frequently. We did this, as well as seriously limit screen time, and our three children all learned to read before they started kindergarten, and are all doing very well at school.

Hey Adele Enslin.

I understand the excitement of seeing our kids grow faster than expected. The same is true in my case. Even my son is three and his touch screen skills are amazing. It catches up fast with everything that he experience on ipad, be it educational or entertainment. But he is under constant supervision and his iPad play is scheduled.

If you think you must buy your child her own tablet/ipad then you must surely make a little research on sideffects. Apart from this I also feel kids from this young age itself must learn to share their toys, things and in your case ipad!

Honestly meena, I hope that when your son turns 9 or 10 that he is not allowed his own personal laptop or phone to use as he sees fit. I am a mom of three, my oldest just turned 13, and although he owns a prepaid smartphone, he only alloeed to use it to get ahold of me after school, after practice, or in moderation when it comes to using the applications, txtng his friends, or listening to music. I have full access to all of his acfounts and passwords, I need to know who is is talking to, playing, or listening to. In this day and age kids are being desensitized at earlier ages. Our schools own ipads in the classrooms that they use for learning tools. Which is fine for my 9 yr old daughter. We own gadgets and xbox 360, wii, a laptop as well as a pc. But I rarely allow them to just sit and use any of them, as we own horses, bycicles, a swimming pool, and they are involved in sports and 4 - H.. there is always plenty to do and I like to use those things as a sometimes likewhen they have friends over or if the weather is bad. My 20 month old baby girl is allowed to use her leap pad w my help, or v- tech which plugs in to our t.v. there is plenty of interactive games we play together, but you have the right idea sticking to the basics w crayons, puzzles, fingerpaints, clay, shaving cream, u can also make your own playdough at home. I worked at my daughter 's preschool for years even past the timewhen she moved on, until I became pregnant with our youngest, and once again became a stay at home mommy. If

you have that luxury, it is so important that they get that alone time for at least the first two yrs. But we can teach them far more than any t.v show or gadget can, plus it provides bonding and trust as well as good communication. Will I allow her to use the ipad or other gadgets, yes probably so, but yes limited and with supervision. Also just point being, even as teenagers, _

there is never a time when we should stop wanting to be number one for them, and justw thouem to set their own limits and ignore daily chores or responsibilitiies and be allowed

My daughter is 3 and been playing with our IPad for a while now, her small motor skills has improved a lot and she's even doing break dancing as she's seen on some of the aps. She loves watching You tube for her nursery rhimes, stories, songs (with my supervision) and she knows most of these song and rhimes by hart. I don't see any problem with it and are quite impressed with everything she can do all ready. We're thinking of getting her her own tab actually cause then we don't have to fight over mine any more....

Like your child, my daughter has been on the iPad since she was just under 2 years. When she was 2 and a half, we put her in a toddler bed and let her take the iPad to bed to fall asleep with. The biggest mistake my husband and I ever made with our daughter. For the first few months it worked well, she was asleep within 15 minutes. Then, over time, it took longer and longer for her to fall asleep. I tried taking it away, yet the crying and screams just broke my heart. Over time, she ended up falling asleep at midnight or later. When she turned 3, she got a twin bed for her birthday and started pre-school a month later. And just before school started, I put my foot down and didn't plug the iPad in one day and it ran out of power shortly after she went to bed. I gritted my teeth as she cried and as my husband took the thing into the other room, pretending to "fix" it. Finally, explaining to her that it was "broken" and making her understand, worked. Since that night, my husband has been reading her books at bedtime. Everyonce in a while we let her play with our iPhones, but not too often. We try to distract her with books and toys.
Moral of the story is, YES, your child CAN become addicted to a gadget, so make sure you put a time limit on his or her play time with it.

my son is 2years 9months and in the last 4 or so months has been using my tablet. i dont think there is anything wrong with it as long as they are using it for educational purposes only. he uses it for puzzels and alphabet games only. it is amazing to watch hime sitting down happily doing puzzles (perfectly i might add), doing his abc's, counting, matching colours etc, he is defnitely advanced for his age and is just getting smarter. i dont think there is anything wrong with it as long as your child has limits and boundries.

I just have an iPhone. I let my three year old do a couple things on it with my supervision. I think it's fine. It's just another skill to learn these days. Obviously it shouldn't get to the point where they don't learn the other things they should. But man, I looove me some angry birds when she's waiting for her lunch and the cafeteria lineup on the ferry is exceptionally long. Yeah, our main use is when traveling. Step 1 - books, step 2 - colouring, step 3 - effing angry birds.

I'm a pretty 'anti-gadget' mom. We have a computer, but that's pretty much it. All of my kids love having time on the computer, of course. Starfall has been good fun and learning for my youngest. Their time is extremely limited on it though. I'd rather have them reading, writing, drawing, playing together with their imaginations, and spending time being physical outside.

In moderation , gadgets are ok. It takes more brain power and skills to play with a physical toy(car, blocks) or an educational toy, than it does to play an online game with an ipad/computer, even if it is educational. People assume that just because the technology is smart, the kids using it get smarter as well. My kid is 4 years old, but i want him at this age to learn social skills, and play with physical toys, and learn as much without the use of computers. He can read pretty well already and I have not used any online teaching apps for him. Because I know that when he gets to be 9-10 years of age, he will be always on his laptop ,or texting.Nothing we can do about it at that age. It is important for him to learn social skills now. I am also worried about the effect on his eyes.

My 4yo and 2yo both like to use my touch pad, but most of the time I limit how much they use it. Both are developmentally where they are supposed to be as far as motor skills go, large and fine. As long as it's supervised and educational I think it's fine.

My 4 year old uses my iPhone, a leapster, a help write letter thing that you fallow the lights with the pen as well as books, pens,paints, block's board games and jigsaw's i think as long as you balence things it's ok if your sitting them down with a device for hours then No it's not. I am also thinking of buying her a DS for Xmas as she will be nearly 5, I also think that as long as your teaching them throughout the day some time in the day has to be just for fun.

Hey Jodi.
Your answer was very informative. This is his second year in pre-school (he stared his school at 2 i.e. last year). He is showing quiet a positive response in his pre-school activities like you said in hand painting, physical play, rhymes recitation, socializing with peers and their parents as well! and a lot more. I am a stay at home mom and hence get to spend quality time with my son. And yes his iPad time is limited.

I agree with you about the ADHD and other side effects on young brains. As I have said earlier he is still in control and not addicted to the gadget.

And here is a plus one from you on using gadgets in moderation. Thanks. I really think kids of this generation needs to keep a pace with change!

I don't think they're bad on occasion and in moderation but don't be reliant on one as a teacher for him. They're for entertainment and shouldn't substitute as education. Children learn best by physically doing mental exercises.



Jodi brings up an excellent point; he needs to learn the physical and social skills that will prepare him for preschool/kindergarten. He'll need to get a feel for the fundamentals of reading as well, by reading plenty of stories to him while tracing the words as you read them. Use fridge letters to help him learn to identify his upper and lower case letters as well as the sounds they make. I think learning is most effective when our natural environment is used to teach, through experience. Just keep in mind that YOU are his best teacher.



The issue I have with learning devices is that they use a high level of excitement to keep the child interested. And you don't want your child to be bored of learning in a manner that does not have the same thrill as a video game. So moderation is the key and a balance of different media (reading, drawing, cooking and measuring, field trips, crafts, experiments, real puzzles etc.) to learn from, I allow my 4 year old son to play online educational games for 30-45 mins a day, 3-5 days a week when my youngest is taking her nap. Mostly, to help him learn his way around a computer. But the rest of the time we're learning from our environment.

Thanks Michelle.
It was a kind of go a head signal from you. My son too gets to play with iPad only during the scheduled hours(yes there is a slot in his routine for iPad). But as I was exploring about whether or not to stop giving him iPad it was all mixed opinion on the net.

Your's is like a plus one for use of iPad in moderation!

My kid is 2.5 and doesn't have any. Nor does he know how to use my iPhone. He has crayons and pens. And blocks, puzzles and those shapes things they put the shapes through the hole. I think they are a good idea and everything but not necessary for small children.

My daughter is also 3 and uses the ipad, she doesn't get to play it all the time and only has educational type games on it and she is playing games that many 6 year olds would have a hard time with I don't see an issue with it as long as it is done in moderation mainly these days we use it to try and get her to sit on the potty long enough to poop. As that is our major obstacle these days.
