“It’s about what the child is doing with the technology, not how long they are doing it,” he says.
With many new technology products now specifically targeted at children and even babies, parents should be careful about selecting those that help their children learn and grow.
“We don’t want to see a use of technology that gets in the way of” relationships between parents and children, Donohue says, “particularly for the youngest infants.”
