Parenting Snapshots: technology for preschoolers

technology for preschoolers


Technology for preschoolers is becoming more prevalent and with the fast advancement of tablets and mobile phones, they are now in everyday use.  Today, in our latest parenting snapshot, I am joined by Kate Barlow of The Parent Consultancy to discuss technology and the use of it by preschoolers.

My own children have daily use of the iPad but, how much is too much?  Should we set limits on their use?  Are they really a good educational tool or do we just use them for convenience so we can grab a quick 5 minutes to get the washing out or cook a meal.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Is using technology damaging?
  • How do we decide what is too much for our preschoolers?
  • What is appropriate at ‘wind down’ time, such as bedtime?
  • Is early morning use appropriate for an extra half hour in bed?


What are your thoughts?  When is too much? Have you used the iPad for their extra few minutes of calm before you start the day?  Maybe you don’t agree.  Should preschoolers even have access to techology.  As ever, please share your thoughts with us in the comments box below.

  • Wow! Great article indeed. Advancement of technology is making life of parents a lot easier especially for those who need to start teaching their toddlers.

  • This is one of the best resources I have seen in a long time. Posted to our non-fiction marketing blog, letting them know to substitute book sales for traffic. While it is great for blog traffic, the ideas work beyond blogging for writing book descriptions or sales pages also. Thank you for putting this together!
