Computer Time

Did you let your toddler use computers?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: Computers have no place in the lives of two-year-olds. Yes, later they can be educational, and I don’t know where I would be without my computer. But I didn’t encourage my toddlers to use computers. Young kids need to play, be read to and to talk. They don’t need to type.
