iPads and kids
Mia (4) and Davidi (2) use iPads. And iPads per se can be fantastic, or awful. Parents talk about limiting iPad time and that is important. But together with that what is important is to raise the educational quality of what they do on their iPad. Because there are two extremely toxic types of iPad apps. Apps with ads and apps with in app purchases. Netflix Kids for example is much better than YouTube kids because children are incredibly vulnerable to ads. They have not yet built their immunity to them and blindly believe all their claims. So my first recommendation is to eliminate YouTube and YouTube Kids and use Netflix. The second danger is in app purchases. Kids fall for them immediately. Hence the need to eliminate all games with in app purchases. But if you buy educational games without ads and without in app purchases your kids can learn a lot using an iPad.
