Is the iPad/Tablet/Phone Also the Babysitter?

Lets face it, we as adults all need to work and get things accomplished. With times like these, when the kids are sheltered in place at home with the family, its often easy to just throw a device in their hands to keep your kids occupied so you can get your tasks accomplished, but what are you really accomplishing? Sure they are quiet, sure they might be playing an "educational" game, but at the same time, there might be some more productive ways of keeping the children busy and focused on their health as well... a "win win" as we like to say for all of us.

Technology-dependent children may also lose their initiative. If, when children get bored, cranky, or bothersome, their parents immediately give them their iPhone, the children are deprived of the opportunity to ask themselves how they might get out of their stimulus-deprived doldrums on their own.If you’re going to allow your child to use technology in a parenting pinch, at least make their screen time count. Be deliberate about the apps and websites they visit and don’t let them browse aimlessly or randomly select their own activities.
