I have added this to my lifestream again due to further thought on this article. Yes, they have been rather dramatic with their words but I do feel that there is a limit and balance. We need to allow children an expressive outlet which will motivate and broaden culture knowledge and behavioural problems. Movement can enable creativity, curiosity and physical stability. Children need support to promote social skills as a way to improve their ability to understand different perspectives and social contact can give a stronger sense of community. I do not think technology is BAD for children but I feel that at times it can be used as a way to entertain or distract the children particularly during times when they need human connection the most.
