World is not only for elders, children have strong rights to live in this World according to their wish. When it’s a question about child’s future then you are bound to think higher than brain’s capacity, because your child will work and live after two or three decades and at that time technology will be more polished and atmosphere will be more innovative. Don’t stop your children from using laptops and mobiles, because if these gadgets have bad impact, then they also have good one. It’s parent’s responsibility to provide their children an atmosphere that fulfils their children’s learning needs. Because, better education makes better future.
