The Mystery Box
Good readers make good leaders. The first time I heard this was at school orientation during my eldest daughter’s first year in grade school.
When my girls were younger we allowed them to play with an ipad because of interactive learning games. I thought this was ok, because it helped them learn, and honestly, it afforded me some peace and quiet. But as more articles on the internet surfaced discouraging iPad use for children because of lack of focus, overestimation, and worries over emotional development (I’ve read that kids don’t learn to self-regulate their feelings when an ipad is used to pacify them) I also limited their use for it.
