Is Your Baby Addicted to Your iPad?

The Telegraph reports Toddlers becoming so addicted to iPads they require therapy:

Dr Graham said that young technology addicts experienced the same withdrawal symptoms as alcoholics or heroin addicts, when the devices were taken away.

He warned that the condition prevented young people from forming normal social relationships, leaving them drained by the constant interaction.

“Children have access to the internet almost from birth now,” he told the Sunday Mirror.
“They see their parents playing on their mobile devices and they want to play too. It’s difficult, because having a device can also be very useful in terms of having a reward, having a pacifier.

It is important that parents and caregivers offer infants and toddlers as much talk, read, play and praise as possible. While electronic “pacifiers” can be helpful, they are no substitute for one-on-one interaction.
