Do you think that all those educational apps are giving your toddler’s brain a workout? Not really. Children ages 3 and up who did not use touchscreen devices scored similarly on developmental tests to children who did. Despite all those games aimed toward letters and shapes. In addition, kids who used them to play noneducational games had lower verbal scores.

Apps do have their place for sure, but going low tech is much better for smaller children. A ration of 10:1 is a good rule to follow. That is 10 traditional activities to one digital game. The bottom line is you are your child’s best learning tool. If playing on a tablet is a rare treat, it is more likely to do the trick when you really need to distract your little one.
