  • About the Book

    Computers can:  

    •  affect young children’s brain, development, as well as their health, and social and emotional growth;
    •  erode a child’s creativity, motivation and problem-solving skills;
    •  undermine writing, spelling and reading skills; and
    • cause poor concentration, and create impatience and low frustration tolerance in children.

    Computers DON’T:

    •  teach children how to think and feel; and
    •  and they DON’T encourage language skills, social skills, imagination, and a strong sense of self – what children need to do well in life.

    Dangers:

    •  Toxic vapours and radiation from computers
    •  Computer games are more harmful than violent movies.
