There are many parents out there who are totally against their child playing any technology such as iPads, Console games and phones etc. My girls are 3 and 5 years old and if i'm honest I don't like them playing with console games such as the Wii, PlayStation or X-Box and at first I was a bit iffy about them playing the iPad that we had purchased at the start of the year but recently I have changed my mind. They get a couple of hours a day on the iPad each and this is usually after school or sometimes in the day for Elliw. You may think that Elliw is just too young to play something like this but in my eyes I am glad that she enjoys playing the iPad because her speech isn't all that great and she is behind in her speech development and since she has had the iPad it has helped her a lot. We have downloaded a few games such as learning games for both ages but they both seem to love going on Youtube and listening/watching nursery rhymes and some videos about play-doh! How they've managed to find those videos I really don't know but it has learnt them both in different ways. In Elliw's way it has learnt her with some words and colours. Even though me and my partner try and learn her many things its a bonus that she's playing something she really enjoys but she is also learning at the same time.
How do you feel about your child/ren playing the iPad or any other technology devices?
