Fine Motor Skill Development
Fine Motor Skill Development ( Jan 2020) - Toddlers who spend too much time in front of televisions, tablets, and smartphones may not become as skilled at problem-solving, communication and other skills needed for school as their peers who have less screen time, a new study suggests. "Screen time is most often a sedentary or passive behavior, with very few learning opportunities." Another reason screen time can slow development is that the hours passed in front of televisions and tablets mean kids may miss out on chances to scribble with crayons or play games that help them learn how to kick a ball or take turns. “These are critical skills in early childhood, because mastery of skill is needed before further development can occur." “You need to walk before you can run, and you need to know how to hold a crayon before you can write your name." Let’s encourage and challenge children in order to develop their age appropriate fine & gross motor development. Let’s say no to gadget time. #lilpallikkoodam #fineandgrossmotordevelopment #reggioemilia
