If I could, I would really like to encourage you to help your son ease his dependance on the iPad. Don't make an issue about it, just slowly.wean him. Take him swimming, go for a walk, do things where the iPad.can't.come. soon, the joy of real life will overtake screen time and he so.t.know when he ever had time to play so much on the iPad.

The joy of life includes iPads. We are living in an unprecedented information revolution. Embrace it. Buy another iPad. One for you, one for him.

No, the Ipad is bad news. Do wean him off it immediately.
