Should Parents Give High Electronic Gadgets to Their Kids as Toys
Despite the fact that there is no major study conducted to show whether high-tech electronic gadgets are good for your kid, many parents are still very skeptical of buying their kids high-tech electronic gadgets such as smartphone and for good reason. Various reports have suggested that electronic gadgets tend to have various effects on children and thus many parents tend to shy away from them. For instance, it has been reported that kids who are constantly using electronic gadgets are very violent and even go as far as disobeying their parents. With that in mind many parents don’t take up the option of buying for their kids high-tech electronic gadgets.
According to Dr. Larry Rosen, a professor and director of Massey National Center for Teaching and Learning, getting your kid that high-tech electronic gadget is actually something good if you happen to follow certain rules. Rosen goes on to state that you can easily increase family interaction thanks to electronic gadgets and this you can be able to achieve by simply being in charge and in control. So what does that mean exactly? Well, it's not that hard all you have to do is play with your kid that video game that you have just bought for him/her, talk to them about technology, its importance as well as how they will use it in life in a healthy way and encourage them to always take breaks from electronic gadgets when they are using them.
Regardless of how you view it, it's becoming hard to avoid the power that is technology and thus teaching our kids how to go about at early age would be an added advantage to them and thus I would suggest that you allow them get the gadgets but you should be in charge or get someone who will be.
