I'm not interested in the reaction from having something taken away. That's universal. I'm interested in this very young baby having experience with a tablet
Exactly!
I have two kids whose parents are teachers. Guess what they do not even have a tv at home. They read books for entertainment and go outside oh how will their kids survive
I find it great that their son doesn't know what a paw patrol is or a whatever kids watch now a days. My 3 year old would live outside if I let her. She rides her power wheels and plays with chalk in our garage when its too late to go outside
