No iPad For Kids

by Mohd in Bla Bla Bla, Kuwait

Do u know a kid that owns an ipad ? of course we all do coz almost every kid now has one, i dont know whats the use of it for them of course some parents will say it helps with educational apps, HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i dont think so. 99% of  kids r just playing games on it Angry Birds or what ever else is out there. Kids need to play physical games football, cycling or any other kind of sport, Kuwaiti kids r becoming BABY ELEPHANTS yes i said it and u may hate me for this but thats the truth u have to face it inorder to change it, that of course if u loved ur child. BTW i just wanna clarify that i dont have kids or even married so all of what im saying is from my observation of our community.

Kids r just getting more and more fat coz of all the JUNK food and artificial sweets plus they dont play any kind of sport & plz dont argue with that coz u might have a kid that plays football, im talking about the majority. Some of course will argue that its not safe out side anymore or that the weather is too hot for them, my answer is so simple u can find anything u want indoor & we never had snow before so high temperature is something we r all used to.

I know im starting to Blend things up iPad, Fat Kids & Sports but it all started when some one at work asked me about the price of an iPad coz he wanted to buy one for his grandson & he complained that kids now dont play or get outside as he used to do. I advised him to buy an Xbox Kinect its the same price as an iPad (150 KD) plus his grandson can play and enjoy a game while moving his body  muscles & burning all the sugar he had during the day. Think of how kids play on an iPad usually they r on the floor with their little head millimeters away from the screen or sitting on a chair slouching playing a game. I dont thats healthy or good for them.Im not a doctor but this differently will have a bad effect on the kid’s eyes or worse, its pure logic no need for a doctor to tell u that.

The main problem lays in the parent who buys an iPad for his child without knowing whats the use of it & if u ask most of those parents they reply with the same sentence ( All of his friends have one ) !!!!!!!!!!   Does that mean if all kids were on drugs u r gonna buy ur child heroin !!!!!!!!!!!

Im not doing an add for Xbox i just gave it as an example for a toy that might benefit kids, if u got suggestion share with us & leave a comment down below on whether u agree or disagree with me.

    you must get the best things available for your children, this is how we were raised and enjoyed our childhood. iPad is the new toy for them and if you understand the reason or not you should buy it for your child to make them happy.
    Your kid smile is the best thing in the world.

      When we were kids games were so simple back then plus the iPad was not intended for children in the first place. its all about how ur kid will benefit for the toy not just buy whatever ur kid wants. this is what i believe.

    you actually read my mind, i discussed this issue with one of my friends few days back & totally agree with you.
    Parents should think of what is best for their child not just buy everything their child desire.
