New research suggests that children under 18 months of age should not have any contact with the displays of electronic devices. Passive entertainment experience on tablets should also be reduced at a later stage of life.

Even in 2015 I mentioned study, according to which the tablets were to assist in the development of children. They showed that virtual training skills can be more easily translated to use them in the real world. And although there are many devices segment of tablets, which are directly targeted children as even DreamTab or Infinity, however, choosing the right device can spice niejednych parents dizzy. At one time Antonia even prepared a special guide, in which he described what to look for in this type of shopping. The Wall Street Journal reported in recent days, according to the latest research, small children should use only an hour a day with tablets. Why? Mainly because of early development. Adult individuals have shaped the brain, through which undertake various activities. Some studies claim that it is flexible to our death and we constantly learn new things and adapt to a changing environment. But you can not hide the fact that the older we are, the change in eating or thinking requires us to greater effort. So I venture to say that children at an early stage of development are like a walking sponge that absorbs external stimuli and information.

Children aged 2 to 11 years should use the equipment up to about 4.5 hours per day, while learning from pre-prepared programs or cartoons. Research has also shown that every hour spent viewing entertainment within the first three years of life, increases the chances by 10% compared to the occurrence in his attention problems at age 7.

As a parent, you should take care of your children and facilitate their access to smartphones, TVs and tablets.
