Technology and your Child-How much is to much?

Does the excessive exposure to TV, video games, instant messaging, and the
cell phone interfere with the development of
the psychological traits for positive outcome of children.

From Baby Einstein tapes to Reader software for two-year-olds to Nintendo games
given as early as 5 years and beyond.
Technological advancements designed to stimulate the intellect
are overwhelming many kids.

Technology access has been linked to improved reading skills, but some believe
that too much technology can impose dangers on today’s Children.
From vision impairment, to technology addiction.
We all know that technology opens the doors to a world of
knowledge and entertainment. But How much is to much?

Technology is constantly being targeted for today’s youths.
There are many applications out there that promote really good things like reading to math.
Those apps, along with educational websites and TV have parents
wondering, how much screen time is too much?
There is no single answer to this question.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) suggests kids ages two years old and younger
be completely screen-free. All other children should get no more than two hours a day.
That includes the TV, tablets, gaming devices, laptops, MP3 players and more.

Technology is not all bad, but it is everywhere. Today’s youth
know their way around every kind of gadget there is. Cell phones,
iPods, even Blackberries.

It may seem like a good thing that kids stay connected with technology.
But some experts are concerned that the use of technological
communication prevents real friendships from developing.

There is actually a name for what happens to children who spend to much time with
their Techological toys do not get out into nature: It’s called(NDD)
Nature-Deficit Disorder .

A child in front of a screen who is not outside enjoying nature is missing out on a lot;
But a child who is in the woods texting while taking a hike, is no better off.
They are missing exploring nature on their journey.Missing out on so many wonderful things.

So how much is to much? You as a parent will have to decide that.

    My nephew started using an iPad at age 3-4 and it has helped him in his development skills….of course my brother does limit his time with the applications. My nephew is 5 now and could probably work the iPad, games, whatever better than I could LOL

    It is hard to limit your children and their technology exposure anymore. As you said, technology is everywhere. My 2 year old watches too much tv. It makes me feel like a bad parent when I turn on The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That to keep him entertained, but there are times, like when I am cooking dinner, that I have no alternative to the ‘babysitter’ aka TV.
