As most of you know I have three children from ages ten to three and my older kids keep telling me they are the only ones who doesn’t have a smart phone in their class. Here, I am debating if giving a smartphone to my older kids is a good idea and how useful it would be for them. Do you have the same question? Let’s explore…
Do you wonder what a child could possibly be doing with a smartphone? For kids, the wait to see the doctor can be agonizing. For parents dealing with antsy (and sick) little ones, even more so. Much the same as some restaurants offer a coloring page and crayons for small children, a smartphone can serve the same purpose anywhere, including the doctor’s waiting room. There are plenty of educational apps out there and this is what interests me the most in a smartphone.
Although most kids don’t get their first smartphone until they’re at least 11, younger kids are getting in on the apps action with their parents’ phone. With parent-friendly apps through a trustworthy carrier and settings found on high-end smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy s6, you can limit your child’s access to age-appropriate and educational games.
Many parents have said their children learn things like cognitive skills from their smartphone apps, which is a plus. Kids can also use smartphones to socialize in a safe, moderated environment, teaching them social skills as well. In fact, over 35 percent of children aged 2-10 spend their time on smartphones consuming what parents consider to be educational material.
