“They haven’t used it. We limit how much technology our kids use at home.”Whats even more interesting is most of the execs who live in Silicon Valley specifically send their kids to non-tech schools with barely if any computers available to them, so that they can focus on hands on learning only. There is a quote that was highlighted in The Times by Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics and a father of five. He explains what drives those who work in tech to keep it from their kids.
“My kids accuse me and my wife of being fascists and overly concerned about tech, and they say that none of their friends have the same rules… That’s because we have seen the dangers of technology firsthand. I’ve seen it in myself, I don’t want to see that happen to my kids.”These same parents believe that their children may grow up devoid of imagination and interpersonal skills necessary and learned through socialization. But other studies show that the power of iPads and other tablets can help students learn concepts of enormous scale, like the size of the solar system, that traditional learning methods can't quite mirror for them. It seems the trick is to simply find that balance in your household, knowing to allow your child to thrive and feel like they are connecting with their peers via the current and relevant form of social mediums, while still grasping and not losing touch of person to person relationships.
