The pros & cons of children’s media device usage

The Internet is full of articles & studies in favor and against digital devices for kids. Does the digital media hinder children’s development or boost it? It’s hard to clearly answer this question as it all depeneds on several factors like the age of children, the content they consume and the kind of the device they use.

Ghergich&Co. together with California Cryobank did a great job creating this extremely informative infographic that outlines main pros and cons of digital devices for kids. They also included a bunch of fascinating statistics  from 2011 and 2013 as well as the most common myths about the usage of devices by kids and more. Good stuff!
