I am not sure where I read this (either simplicity parenting/heaven on earth/you are your childs first teacher) , but the author said that there had been studies that 14 year olds without any prior knowledge learned to use media just as quick as their peers who had used them since toddlerhood..
I am having a hard time with my inlaws , as Jamie does not watch TV/uses computers etc (he´s only 2.5) and I would like this for my MIL to read..
has anyone seen such a study or knows on which page in which book it is? I cannot find it!
Haven't found that one yet, but your in laws might come back with this one:
Jane Healy, Failure to Connect: How Computers Affect Our Children's Minds - for Better & Worse
1998, NY, Simon & Schuster
I don't have time to google it or anything at the moment so hopefully that will help you find the study!!!
Regardless of what your in-laws "come back with" or say.
Bottom line: "They are your children!"
Your in-laws did what they knew best for their children. Now it's your responsibility to do what you know best for your children.
