In our modern world, with the entrance of mobile devices like tablets and smartphones, to our lives. Our children are glued to our phones our tablets. Some times maybe frequently, we are thinking that it is the best way to calm them down :) But I have started to think that are we doing the right things for our children?
It is almost impossible to keep them out from these devices, So, we need to use them for our benefits.
I have found the app. below and my son really likes it. If you can share with me also the mob. app. which you think that will be useful. I will be really appreciated that.

thnks for your all kind opinions. And I am totally agree with you. But I think that we can use the tech. for our kinds benefits also. sometimes I compare my childhood with my son's and realized that his brains are working more complicated than mine and he can make the connections between the situations much more easy than I was. I believe that all these can be possible thanks to Tech. devices around him. So, If we can use these devices without exaggeration. they will really help our babies developments.

no. There was a study done in Europe concerning this. They noticed in preschool that most children who were always around technology and used phone, ipads, tablets, etc. could not even build with blocks. Children are losing cognitive skills with the increase of technology usage. In my personal opinion and after reading about the study, my daughter is not allowed to play on the phones except when on long car-rides or at the dr if other toys are unavailable.
My husband and I STRONGLY encourage parents to allow their children to go outside as much as possibly and learn to fly a kit, or kick a ball. Use toys without noises and flashy lights to encourage imagination. The imagination is slowly disappearing in todays world due to increasing video usage and technology.

Og course this is all just an opinion and we realize it will not be agreed upon by everyone.
