Are iPads and tablets bad for young children?
Flewitt thinks that to deny children access to tablets is to «risk having one section of society that is growing up with skills and one section that is growing up without. You might think that it doesn’t matter because they will develop those skills later. But it’s not the same. They won’t identify with it. It’s not part of who they are … Children have been born into a world where these things exist,» she says, «like we were born into a world where there were televisions, cars on the streets and packaging on food.»
