Do you think electronics, especially hand-held games, will have a positive effect on children?


My grandboys constantly play on their Kindle Fire, iTouch, etc. My daughter limits them, but they still spend a lot of time using them. I wonder how it will affect them in the future.

    Thanks for your answer. I wish I could interest them -- or their parents could -- in books.

    Thanks for your answer. I have used Luminosity in the past. I'm hoping it will help my memory, which seems to be going as I age.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your answer. I think that it's good and bad also. The thing that bothers me is how much they want to play, like an addiction.

    Thank you for your answer and my biggest concern of the things you listed is they do not learn how to engage people. They are scheduled to go to two basketball camps this summer and I think that will be a good experience. Thanks again.

    I appreciate your answer. We took the grandkids to a crawfish boil yesterday and they threw the football with an 84 year-old man and

    were outdoors for four hours. They seemed so much more animated and seemed to be truly enjoyed themselves so much.
