New Einstein Generation Revolutionizes Mobile Devices

Children and iPads

Many of us have seen how most infants from a very early age know how to use a cell phone and a tablet. This surprises us, and we ask ourselves: how is it possible that at their young age (12 months) they can answer a phone call and play videogames like Angry Birds? According to an article published by Cromo.com, these kids are known as the touch generation.

The easy use of mobile devices is due to the touch-screen design, which allows any kid or infant to be able to use this technology. For Roberto Balaguer, an educational clinical psychologist, the touch generation has another meaning.

But there are studies that show that allowing your kids to use these new forms of technology at an early age can be more harmful than helpful. According to the website Todobebe.com, parents should consider three important things before allowing their kids to use tablets or other mobile devices like entertainment toys.

  1. Age
  2. Clear rules
  3. Monitoring what they access

Despite this caution, in the world of technology and business, the number of users between 8 and 12 years of age increased 80% in the first quarter of 2012. This is according to telam.com, which also claims that by this year there will be more than 100 million “gamer”-type social games in Latin America. You can find more information on these statistics at the website SuperData.

As parents, you have the ultimate decision and control over your kids’ use of these technological devices, which can have both positive and negative influences on the lives of your little geniuses.

    Great article Pilar. Important for parents to know that they model how their kids use technology. They also need to find a balance between screen time and other activities.
    Common Sense Media is a great resource for parents in all related to media, technology and parenting in the digital age. Abrazos.
