New Delhi [India]: Parents are very concerned about our children’s development, including the TV programs they watch and video games they play.
They often consider these games and programs cater to the lowest common denominator. As children are attracted to smart phones, tablets and it’s the responsibility of guardians that right content is introduced to the children.
As a parent, one should strive to find the areas children are strongest in and harness their talents further. It is very important to address their weaknesses if any. In this digital era, educational apps could be an excellent tool, where children can learn while having fun.
Using the right apps give children the chance to explore both their logical and imaginative capabilities.
