Experts assure that children who are hysterical need to give some time to enable them to independently settle down, in other words you need to leave for a while the screaming baby one, and not give in to emotions and not to give into the hands of a tablet or phone to quickly calm him down.

According to child psychologists, child fascination with modern gadgets leads to the fact that the child is not able to control their own emotions, which in turn inhibits the emotional development.

A group of researchers from the University of Bostonsokgo came to the conclusion that children must find their own way to help keep control of feelings, but do not hide them, what happens during the distraction of the game in your phone or tablet.

Gadgets are now so common that parents give their children almost from the first months of life. According to Dr. Jenny Rodeski (pediatrics department specialist at Boston University), now there is no reliable data on how modern electronic devices affect the child .

Dr. Rodeski deals with the problems in the development and behavior of children, studies were conducted only in the field of TV, during which it was found that the more time children spend watching television, the harder it are communication and language skills.

The children spend their free time with mobile devices, instead of live chat with their peers. According to the pediatrician said that if parents see the only option to calm the child, giving him a phone or tablet, then the baby is still not developed an internal mechanism that is responsible for self-control.

In earlier studies it was found that e-books and other interactive devices are important for a child who has reached the age when able to recognize and assimilate Read or under development, when it is necessary to increase the active vocabulary. The experts noted that for such devices the child must be a minimum of primary school age, and it is better if it already starts to go to school.

The work carried out by pediatricians at the Boston University, it has been proven that children who started to get involved in such "toys" at an early age were less developed socially and emotionally as compared with their peers who are new to the tablet later in life or even they are not used.

Studies have shown that if a child is in the early development of the mind all the time spent with your mobile phone or tablet, it can lead to the fact that he will not developed problem-solving skills, mechanisms of social interaction, empathy (compassion) - ie . All those abilities that usually develop during the game, communication with peers, explore the surrounding world. Also, modern gadgets violate the development of fine motor skills, learning about the world through touch, which is very important to teach the natural and exact sciences in the future. In addition, it was found that the muscles that are needed in the future child for writing, are not developed as a result of the frequent use of the sensor.
