5 Useful Apps That Make Your Kid Learn Smarter


Put a child in the same room as a smartphone and in all likelihood, they will reach for it. Recent surveys have discovered that nearly ninety percent of children aged between 2 and 4 were often found with their eyes constantly glued to a mobile device. This alone raises many concerns: Are smartphones and tablets safe for children? Is too much interactive screen time detrimental to   the social-emotional development of our kids? Does pacifying our toddlers with a smartphone or iPad actually impede their ability to learn self-regulation? However, we can ignore these for now, since we have larger questions to consider.

Are you tired of failing to unplug your kid from the technology overload? Does your child’s addiction to screen make you wary about his cognitive abilities?

Well, thankfully, from a myriad of educational applications, we have listed below 5 useful ones that may help your kids learn smarter while they have fun.
