Is Screen Time bad for pre school kids upto age 5 ?

It all adds up. Cartoon on mobile at lunch, watching on a tab in the car, watching TV at dinner, just before bed and the list goes on. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children of pre-school age should’nt have more than one hour of screen time per day. But the reality is that children learn to use screen technology before they can walk, talk or read. Research suggests that too much screen time is harmful for kids. From warnings about eye sight damage to negative shifts in brain connectivity, many parents are struggling to find a solution, especially when their child is showing signs of screen addiction.  Chris Smith | Know Techie | September 12, 2018

Chennai-Based Sisters Build Futures of Orphaned Girls.

The Annai Ashram is an orphanage for girls in KK Nagar, Trichy that has changed completely thanks to the Robotix Learning Solutions. The Robotix Learning Solutions is an organization founded by sisters Aditi Prasad and Deepti Rao Suchindran. According to them, the number of women in STEM fields is small when compared to the men.

IS YOUR CHILD FUTURE READY?

Its 2030, you drive your autonomous Electric Tesla car into the driveway, open your house door with voice control and walk in to spend the evening with your family. You know your kids are home because you got a notification on your smartphone from your personal home robot. But wait, your fridge has sent your phone a notification that you’re out of eggs and milk! “Hey Alexa! We need eggs and milk by tonight!” PING, the doorbell rings, 1 hour later, Amazon delivers your order to your doorstep. After dinner, which was cooked in your super smart oven that knows exactly how you like your pizza, your family spends the evening playing augmented reality games (which by the way can teach your kids too, but they still prefer to play!)
