A report from NIE shows that younger children using gadgets of ipad, iphone likes are exposed to great risk. Any comment?

i felt that gadgets using cause aggravated tantrums and conflict with parents especially when these devices are denied from their use. A devil or angel, are you to judge. How do you refrain or limit your child use of such devices?

Pls feel free to discuss.

I am still resisting the introduction of such electronic gadgets to my kid. I don't know much about the risk and so on. My reason is very simple - to preserve his perfect eye sight for as long as possible and that there are much more activities for the kid's than to be glued to a little electronic toy. We have iPads, iPhone etc but the little one at home knows it is a treat to watch cartoons or "read books" from our iPhone/iPad. I have made it clear enough to him that It is a treat, not a right.

Hide the tv remotes and apply passcodes for iPhone and iPad. Better still, get rid of the tv
