10 Reasons I Will Continue to Give My Children Handheld Devices

I’ll let you read through this article (2014), Megan Egbert of the blog Chop Wood, Carry Water writes it better than I ever could about the new age debate of analog versus digital, but I just wanted throw in my two-cents. I am a firm believer in balance. It’s one of my favorite values and one that I base my personal mission statement on. To take away technology completely for children under twelve is absurd. In a society where technology is a key to everyday living, I feel you’ll put your children at a great disadvantage as they get older. The argument that it’s better to monitor and teach children how to integrate technology into their lives is important for balance. Great post! Excellent argument.
