  • I sat down on the blanket with my daughters 1 year old baby. Paid no attention to me at all. She was watching cartoons on her phone.

  • This is the problem with people today. Everyone is so worried about their stupid technology, that they are actually NEGLECTING their CHILDREN, family, friends, jobs, and other very important responsibilities that are a necessity in our lives. But when you are neglecting your children for your technology not only are you telling your children that your phone or tablet is more important than they are. You are also to busy to teach your children that they do matter and their needs matter. You are also failing to teach YOUR children, to read, write, communication skills, good decision making skills, RESPECT, honesty, self-esteem, self-worth, self-love, responsibility for one’s actions and words, a GOOD WORK ETHIC (not ENTITLEMENT to anything, but to WORK HARD for the things they want and need in life), and most importantly discipline (so that they learn right from wrong and learn to RESPECT other people they come in contact with, family, friends, or anyone else that they will have contact with in the course of their day). And the lack of these important skills in today’s children is clearly evident with the ignorance, filth, and blatant disregard for anyone or anything that doesn’t benefit them in any way with zero effort to achieve the end result.

    People, these children didn’t ask to be born!! They had no choice in the decision of their birth, nor did they ask for, YOU THE SUPPOSED PARENTS, to disregard them as a burden or lower life form. You make the decision to spread your legs (ladies) or whip it out indiscriminately for anyone (gentleman), then be responsible for your actions and your children you bring in this world!! Otherwise, don’t have children if you don’t want the RESPONSIBILITY of teaching and caring for them!!!

  • Your kid is more important than your phone or u get what u deserve if something happens to your kid. Either put down your phone or dont have kids because you dont deserve them. From someone who works with kids

  • Omg when I heard you say on stream a video was coming tonight I was thinking “I would love if it could be something about confidence because I really need it” and here I am..

  • love Diane! great topic of study watch the Still Face experiments with babies; also called Project ABC It is incredibly heart-breaking and tells you all you need to know about how much and often our kids need us. We are teaching kids terrible things by escaping in their presence. It is damaging!

  • dang dev,

    not only is it awesome to see you and those around u improve so much in basketball, but your production is just as great!!! KEEP. IT. UUUUUUUUUUUPPPPP!!!

  • I give my phone to my son who is about to be 2 ONLY when he is being difficult while trying to get grocery shopping done but at home we read,i play with him, teach him things and he only watches babyfirstv which has helped him sooo much in learning and remembering things! No one should feel guilty about using technology just know how to space it out because it can suck you in

  • Kind of a misleading title. I thought we’d see “The impact of screen time on toddlers” not “toddlers watching their parents on a phone”

  • Smartphones are literally a magic wand that allow you to do hundreds of things that nobody could have done years ago. People like having the magic power, myself included.

  • Umm why? Is this what parents do with their feckin toddlers now? Tablets and smart phones weren’t around when my kids were that age, I had a Nokia lol. I mean if your kids are calling you especially at 2 what parent doesn’t respond? This is really sad. Now that mine are teens when we go out to eat all the phones go in the center of the table and you’re not allowed to touch them.

  • There are also studies that show toddlers are more developmentally advanced than those that don’t use tablets and phones. Better fine motor skills, attention, and problem solving. My son just turned 3 and he can count to 20 and read. He has also figured out on his own how to play complicated games that are difficult even for me.

    I think it also stimulates their imagination and creativity more. I do of course limit his screen time and will go for days at a time without it. Too much screen time is unhealthy for all ages. Socialization and exercise are also very important.

  • It’s actually getting worse than simply not having parents attention. Moms are straight up leaving small children in a bath to check their phones… 5 minutes turn into 30 real quick, then the small children drown. That’s the world we live in now.

  • Seen adults do this too. I still try to interact with those around me. But when it really frustrating when they can not look up or ignore you to even play and even spouses do to each other. They get bad when claim you being rude when ya trying to get them off phone to pay attention to live person.

  • Now if those women were babysitters who were doing that, then the parents would have had a hissy fit. Just because you aren’t “on the clock” doesn’t mean you can just skirk parental duties and awareness of your child, especially infants and toddlers.

  • Damn I don’t even have kids and this broke my heart (obviously a 1st world problem because ppl are dying) but I’m not raising a iPad kid��
