Children and Technology - Page 2
My daughter loves the couple of games she has on the PS3, and also occasionally enjoys playing on her DS. She also reads; in fact, she devours books at a great pace. She plays with her brother and friends (usually imagination based games) and, when I can, I try to play board games with her (we both love chess). In this way I try to ensure that she has a rounded view of the world and understands that technology is merely a tool rather than an all enveloping lifestyle.
The world is a stunning, beautify place with many sounds, sights and smells that would simply go unnoticed if you spent your whole life immersed in your own little world, with music on demand drowning out birdsong and your DS/whatever blotting out a colorful flower. We own our gadgets - they don't own us.
