Do you let your toddler play on the computer? And for how long if you do? If you don't, why not?”

  • Using a computer with momma's help is an excellent way to development hand and eye coordination and fine motor skills.
    I recommend using age approp curriculum. rather than navigating a website for the first few exposures. That way, you are not having issues with tabs and other ads to make the child frustrated.
    I would do it for 10 min at a time perhaps.
    Once they do develop the ability to navigate on their own, I still would limit it to no more than twenty minutes at a time for ergonomic and vision reasons.
    Have fun!

  • haha yes, my 2.5 year old LOVES it because we go to mickeymouseclubhouse or pbskids.org and plays the kids games. but i can only take it for so long before i get annoyed and we turn it off... maybe 5-10 minutes? however, for christmas my aunt got him his own little kid computer which is fun - he knows how to use it and is learning lettes and how to use a mouse etc...
