Can You Ruin Your Family With Too Much Technology?

As the tech savvy matriarch of the family, I find it important to keep my nieces & nephews on top of the latest tech trends and new releases.  However, I’m still deciding if I’m more of a fan of smartphone/tablet use as entertainment vs education for children – check out a few facts below…

Many parents seem to think gadgets don’t just keep kids occupied — they can also help them grow and learn. 77% of parents think tablets are beneficial to kids, and 77% think they help develop creativity, according to Schools.com’s findings. More than a quarter of parents have downloaded apps for their kids. The top genres? Fun, at 46%; education, at 42%; and creative, at 28%.

Are you a tech-heavy parent raising tech-heavy kids?  Do you think smartphones and tablets do more to help or hurt the development of kids today? Sound off below.
