I have a 19 month old and there is no way I would buy him an iPad. NO WAY! When I am on mine he will sit and play games with me but I couldn't imagine buying him his own.



My kids (mainly my 7 year old) are aloud to play video games but are on a strict time limit even if it's educational.

Its not FOR him.. I just want him to be able to use it as well.
How come when a parent wants to buy something the family can enjoy its automatically neglecting your child!?
I said in the post that I wanted a mini because I want to take it with me to read my books at work instead of using my iPhone. I work 55-58 hours a week with a decent amount of break time. So he's NOT going to be using it often.
I was thinking it would be great to use at bed times on the weekend when I am home and able to put him to sleep. As something we could do together in bed to settle him down. You know read a book, play a letter game.
Tell me HOW that is wrong?

Quoting Mommy|Of2:" ............................................"


We bought an iPad for me when LO was about 2 and it was GREAT!
it was the only thing to keep her somewhat occupied at a restauarant. We'd just play Yo Gabba Gabba.
Now she plays fun but very simple, baby-like games on it for AT MOST 45 mins per day.
I swear she learned her shapes super fast becasue of the toddler games.
Now she is doing great with letterss and their sounds using Endless Alphabet (she recently turned 4).

I said as he grew it would probably end up his.

He's way to young for an ipad, hell I think my 5 year old is way to young for an ipad but DH really wanted to get her one.
