Scientists from Boston University (medical school) conducted a study which proved that children who are allowed to use tablets and phones, often lag behind in emotional development and more difficult to build friendships, writes The Telegraph.
Empathy (empathy to others) may be impaired in children who spend many hours for the tablet computer. Games and the Internet distract the child from social interaction and adaptation to the social environment. Communication is extremely important in early childhood, according to psychologists.
Touch screen does not develop fine motor skills in children, which slows down the acquisition of basic skills. In the exact and natural Sciences such children are given much more difficult. Excessive use of the tablet slows down the growth of muscles needed for writing with the very near future.
