Here’s an interesting article highlighting factors parents should consider while raising their children,

Children perform better at building their language skills when parents make an effort reading out aloud on a daily basis, stories etc, rather than sitting in front of a TV and watching educational videos on DVD’s.

Tossing gadgets and mobiles to kids may help parents pacify them for a while, but if this habit takes a form of an addiction it is hard to reverse those effects, as parents we try to make a concious effort for our 4 year kid finding ways of keeping him engaged to his toys, allowing him to draw any random stuff on a slate, his coloring books etc. making sure he gets 1-2 hours playing time in the garden or outside the home in evening every alternate day in the week

It is hard to keep kids away from gadgets these days, that is why we allow our kid to fiddle with our mobile or tablet for some time in the evening, as parents we may not hit all the checklists right, however the maximum you can score helps your child anyways

3D simply isn’t motivating consumers to buy new televisions

See on Scoop.itTaazaBytes

It’s not a compelling reason to upgrade current television just for the 3D feature, Personally I am still torn between Passive and Active Shutter 3D tech available through LG and Samsung in India.

I would emphasise importance of a connected device in the current gen television range that would let me enjoy web entertainment content on the go.
