Why Steve Jobs Didn’t Let His Kids Use iPads (And Why You Shouldn’t Either)

Steve Jobs was a hypocrite for peddling Ipads to children and parents as “educational and fun devices” when he didn’t believe in using them on his own kids, but yes we can still learn something from it. Are tablets and screens bad for kids?

I hear of so many schools taking up the use of Ipads as part of their lessons and of the results showing that kids who were required to use Ipads in classes actually don’t fare as well as those who attended classes that used traditional teaching tools.

As more and more research emerge about the effects of screens and tablet devices on developing children’s minds (and we can be sure there will be more to come in the future) , it might be forcing some parents to rethink whether allowing their kids unrestricted access to screens is such an innocuous thing after all.
