I have 1. 3 year baby girl & she is totally gadget free because I don't show her rhymes & cartoons in mobile as well as in TV while eating. I keeps her busy in another activities. because rays of gudgets spoils eyesight as well as they become addicted so can't concentrate on another learning activities. I think at least ignore gedgets till they are under parents control. if they will learn than we can set time limit.

I also had the same issue with my two sons , 4 years old nd the younger one 1 year old. They eat ,slept nd played with these smart gadgets . But from past one month me nd my hubby made it a point to avoid mobiles in front of them. I even hidded my mobile nd used when they both slept. for emergency I used a basic phone which dint had any smartness.. But know after one month the results are positive. They both are changing. Thank God.

Hi, Thanks for suggesting such a nice blog. I just want your advice on how to engage a almost 3 year old boy when you have limited options available at home. I tried to engage him in coloring he takes interest just for few minutes after that he starts taring papers and finally I have to engage him in some electronics. So that I can finish off my house hold work. I stay in US and here we only have to house work and as our stay is for few months , we have not purchased many items apart from his favorite toys.
