It depends on the age of the child. My 3+ grandchild is very observant and mimics what others-both adults and children-do. So the more I'm parked in front of the new tech gadgets the more the child wants to do it too. The good thing is that they become tech savvy at a very young age. The bad is the impact the flashing visuals have on the young developing brain.
As parents and grandparents, we influence their behavior. As they grow older they do it alone and it's again up to us to deal with it.
On the other hand, they learn to deal with new information each second, in a myriad of ways.
It's not so much the new technology (as they are born in this era) as it is the fact that much of it has become indispensable.
