See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I recently bought a couple apps (team umizoomi, and Dora) both educational, for my 3 year old to play on my kindle fire. Our rule is that he cant play with it unless Mommy or Daddy sits with him, and he is usually very good with it. A few days ago he was playing on it, i guess he won a game and got excited and threw my kindle up in the air saying "whooo hoo"! I watched in slow motion as my Kindle hit the wall, and fell behind the couch to the tiled floor! Of course it broke, the screen is black! My mother says, " I don't understand why you let a toddler play with expensive stuff like that ". She says that I should not be upset because I allowed him to use it knowing something like that would happen! Actually, No I did not expect something like that to happen! That's why we created the rule above! I don't let him navigate around on the computer, or use my phone, I just figured if those games were available surely they were meant for a toddler to use!!! Do you think my Mother was right? Do you let your kids play games on expensive electronics?
