My parents were told by a top eye specialist several years ago that it is bad for your eyes if you sit too close to a TV screen, even more so for children. Imagine how bad a computer, IPhone, IPad etc.must be. Children are wearing glasses at a much younger age than they were a few years ago. Children should not be learning spelling and basic arithmetic via computer.
Teachers should be correcting spelling that children do in school time, even if they don’t mark errors in their homework. Even teachers in some private schools don’t do so. Luckily some parents check their child’s homework before it is handed in.
