Are Tablets the New Nanny?

The Nanny

There was a time when humans were needed to watch our kids when we were occupied. In many ways, television took over and started helping in the baby-watching program, but it wasn’t until the rise of tablet that the true diversion for very young children really started popping up. I know. I’m a parent, and I’m not proud that my kid knows how to use the iPad better than I do.

This graphic comes to us from Schools.com via Hyundai Los Angeles and examines the way that tablets have, in many ways, replaced the need for human interaction. It’s not necessarily a good thing but it is what it is. Click to enlarge.
