The advent of modern technology has added some benefits to the lives of many while others feel it’s doing more harm than good.
This has to do with how the newer generation is addicted to screen time and that is obviously being called out as a very unhealthy activity.
The mother opened up on Mumsnet to share how living with a toddler can be hard sometimes. Therefore, she does allow her child to make the most of her screen time.
This includes saying hello to two hours of using her iPad on a daily basis. But people were mortified to learn that a two-year-old getting exposed to the dangers of the web is just uncalled for. Therefore, they slammed her as a lazy parent. And wanted her to stop setting a bad example for the child.
If that was not daunting enough, the mom says that she is happy that her child can now type a few letters that were not possible before. She feels her baby is learning so much at a young age and since the world is already dependent on technology, then why not.
The mother went one step further to justify her actions by mentioning how her child does get time for plenty of other activities like outdoor playtime and reading books.
Sparking a whole new debate with netizens online, she added that it’s beyond shocking to learn how her child’s development has grown so much in these few days.
And in her opinion, using the iPad has a lot to do with it.
The general consensus was that such behavior must be avoided at all costs. It’s the worst thing for any child to go through and can affect brain growth and emotional intelligence as well. But the mom feels she knows what’s best for her child and that’s why allows her to use it under her supervision.
