goodnight iPad!

Look what i found at the library!

Can’t help but notice the book at the “suggested books” section of the library because it’s so similar to “goodnight moon”. The title of the book is quite catchy since our Edward loves to play with the iPad. So there we go, we borrowed it. After reading, i figured this book wasn’t meant for kids. Only adults would understand the parody. Anyway, looked at the library code and there you go, it’s a book for adults πŸ™‚ not for kids. Edward loved the last page though whereby everybody’s sleeping and the room is dark πŸ˜‰ just like “goodnight moon”. That’s all that matters to him i guess πŸ˜‰ that the room is dark and it’s time to sleep. Hehe.

Babies and toddlers these days are so exposed to gadgets. Mostly phones and tablets. Is it a good or bad thing? Well, I would say it’s good if it’s not an addiction and if the child actually learns something from it e.g. a really good toddler app would be great for the child. But Edward is almost addicted. We are trying hard to not give in to his every request for the iPad / iPhone / iPod whenever he sees one of us using it. First of all, it’s not good for his eyes to be staring at the screen for a long period of time. Second of all, he needs to PLAY like a child. Not like how adults play. (yes, some adults actually ‘play’ or rather ‘have fun’ with these gadgets)…

Is your child in love with gadgets? How do you control the usage? I’m trying to find a way to compromise that works for our family.
