We have 3 small children and one is very Ipad obsessed. He is very tech savvy for his age and a very quick learner. We don’t like how frequently he will ask for the Ipad and if left to his own devices he would happily play the ipad all day, an easy 4 or more hours straight. My husband worries that his dependency and desire for the Ipad is abnormal, I don’t think that our son would be too different to his peers though. We definitely don’t want to allow our son free access to the Ipad and we do set limits for him. I’m wanting to hear from other parents who can relate and also have a child/ren similar to my son who is Ipad obsessed and could happily play for hours on end. How frequent do you let your child use an Ipad? What strategies and rules do you have in place at home to help with their Ipad obsession?
