But do not forget that no one, even the most modern, super-gadget will not replace a mom . And also remember that the maximum time of use at that age – 10 minutes a day  ; that wi-fi at the time of the game should be turned off, and the distance between the crumb and the gadget should be optimal for a minimum load on the eyesight.
