Technology could be stunting development

By  | 

If your kids spend hours swiping the screen of a smartphone or tablet. They could be seriously stunting their development.

Doctors say kids use technology so much their hand muscles aren't developing properly.

That can make it hard for them to hold a pencil, and make it difficult for them to learn how to write.

Experts say parents can help by encouraging play with: blocks, crayons, stickers, or pull toys.

And if you do break out the iPad choose apps that use creative drawing and play.
