How is Technology Affecting Our Kids?
#6 Information Retention
With the whole world of information at your fingertips, who has to remember anything? People used to pride themselves on being walking encyclopedias but with Wikipedia and Google only seconds away, who needs to remember information for themselves anymore?
If you find your child is having trouble remembering things, it could be a sign that their development is being hindered in some way. The time spent on gadgets may be to blame. Try to limit the use of gadgets for a while and see if the problem improves. You could also try to limit the use to one gadget at a time. Talk to your kids about the things they have researched online to help them retain the information.
