Here are 3 ways how your children can benefit from technology.
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader!
E-books have been in the spotlight since decades and has proven to show tremendous improvement in reading habits of children.
Children have proven to enjoy the variety of fonts they come across on screen than on the printed books. With children always on move and their likeability for gadgets, reading books online makes inculcating the habit of reading easier.
A child with access to an e-reader can be carrying hundreds of books in their hand thus, an easy and convenient option for parents especially when embarking on a long journey, and wanting their children to be relaxed and entertained.
There’s a great option for children whenever they encounter a word and aren’t sure of its meaning, they can just long press on the word, tap on the look-up and call up its definition.
Reading is like feeding your brain, it’s the food that contains all the essential ingredients that are much needed for ones growth.
Life is short, play more!
Which kid doesn’t derive happiness from games? Especially if they are virtual!
E-games make a child more active and mentally alert. There are games which require the missions to be completed before the time runs out, and this helps children in becoming more attentive thereby, encouraging them to learn and instil time management skills.
Playing online games helps them to coordinate their minds with the actions of their hands, this improves their mental strength. Safety is also one main issue parents brood over, but that can be tackled by imposing some strict rules that are to be followed.
As a parent you have all the right to get worried about letting your child indulge in online gaming, but sometimes imposing too many limitations can do more harm than good.
Crafting creativity through virtual world
Kids love craft! That’s enough said. Crafting with children can be so much fun and very much entertaining. It often happens that, some crafts that seem quite confusing and tricky are easy for the little hands.
