IPad Addiction

Came across this article and think it’s really worth sharing, also a very good case study reflecting the growing up environment of infants/toddlers nowadays:

‘The day I realised my toddler was addicted to the iPad’: Three-year-old William tugged at the duvet and woke his father demanding the tablet… at 4am

Some food for thought: How do we help the younger generations to develop healthy relationship with those advanced gadgets? How do we balance while using them as educational or entertaining tools (not iNanny!) but not overusing leading to obsession and/or addiction?

(To the educational psychologists and child experts: is this going to be a newly added and researched Developmental Disorder?!)
