Today, even a child cannot do without a mobile phone. But not all parents know at what age to buy your baby such a gadget.
Leading experts recommend that you think carefully before giving a mobile gadget to your child. Experts say that you can buy the smallest equipment only when the baby reaches “maturity” – a period when the child is fully aware and adequately responds to the unique tool.
Leading psychologists believe that boys and girls under the age of 10 cannot use mobile devices properly. Therefore, the presence of a phone contributes to the risk of “free-swimming” – when a child can freely access the Internet and social networks, use viral sources and banned sites. Joe Osterman, the author of the research projects, is convinced that parents should first see how ready their baby is for such a gift, and only then buy a phone.
