Steve Jobs

New York Times Reporter, Nick Bilton, once assumingly asked Steve Jobs, “So your kids must love the iPad?”

Jobs responded: “They haven’t used it. We limit how much technology our kids use at home.”

There is actually a trend of Tech executives and engineers who shield their kids from technology. They even send their kids to non-tech schools like the Waldorf School in Los Altos, where computers aren’t found anywhere, because they only focus on hands-on learning, reading physical books…

Jobs continued:  “If our current addictions to our iPhones and other tech is any indication, we may be setting up our children for incomplete, handicapped lives devoid of imagination, creativity and wonder when we hook them onto technology at an early age. We were the last generation to play outside precisely, and we learned from movement, hands-on interaction, and we absorbed information through physical books, as opposed to a Google search”.

Now is the time for change! Back in the days, reading a good physical book and learning in different ways, helped us become more well-rounded individuals.
Think about this….
