What is this teaching my niece? Using an Ipad as a babysitter, ALL the time. Everywhere they go.
So my brother and SIL allows their 8 year old daughter to go out EVERYWHERE, I mean no matter where, with her holding her iPad in front of her. She walks around with it. She walks into restaurants with it, watching it, in front of her face. She done this at my grandmother's funeral too. I don't know how she doesn't walk into things.
We will be having a family dinner out and I literally won't know she's there, I'll look over and I see the glow of her face in the light of the ipad. I feel like they just want to not have to deal with her, and it's teaching her to be rude. My kids have an ipad and iphones. I do allow them to play games on their phones if we are experiencing a long wait.
So I guess I'm not asking for advice on what to do, it's not my child, this is more a rant.
