In this episode we cover:
Technology and Internet interaction shouldn’t be instead of face to face interaction.
Younger children should interact in face to face situations, rather than using technology.
Imagination is far more intricate and advanced than any piece of technology.
Disagreements with siblings will do more for your tamaiti’s brain development than sitting for 3 hours on technology.
Using technology is not harmful, the issue comes from what they are “not” doing and learning while on technology, for example:
- Not interacting with the world
- Not experiencing the environment
- Not learning about conflict resolution
