A new research study says parents should use their iPads to control their children’s activities and to monitor the quality of their lives, while avoiding the pitfalls of social media.
In the new study, researchers at Stanford University compared the productivity of parents who used an iPad to control the children’s social media habits to the productivity with which parents used their iPhones or laptops, or the iPad and smartphone.
“I don’t think you can really talk about the iPad as a device,” said senior author Naya Rivera, a doctoral candidate in psychology at Stanford.
The study is based on an experiment with nearly 1,000 children and parents who were asked to create two-hour videos for their children to watch while they worked at home.
When the children were allowed to watch the videos, the researchers found that the iPad had a significantly greater effect on productivity than did the iPhone or laptop.
This study shows that children and adults can create a very high quality video using an iPad.
It can be a very useful tool to have in a classroom, especially for kids who need to engage in a variety of activities.
Rivera said that parents should also be aware that social media can be distracting, especially in a high-pressure setting, and that it can lead to an overuse of technology, including smartphones.
I think it’s important to be aware of the negative side effects that can occur, like increased stress, she said.
“If we can control our children’s activity and use technology to control them, then it can actually help them feel a bit more at ease.”
Rivera added that parents need to be cautious with what they post on social media, and should use social media as a tool to encourage their children and their friends to be social.
“There is a real danger when we allow our children to do something like Facebook and Instagram, where you’re sharing their pictures with a friend or a group, it can have a negative impact on their social engagement,” she said, adding that parents have a responsibility to be sensitive to the childrens’ needs.
As parents, we can create our own digital environments that are a little bit more relaxed, and they’re able to connect with each other and be connected with their friends, she added.
Researchers have been looking at ways to control child social media behavior since 2009, when researchers at the University of Minnesota began to explore how technology might impact children’s well-being.
In the latest study, the Stanford researchers found a positive effect of social-media use on children’s productivity.
But they also found that parents were able to improve their childrens productivity when they started using the iPads instead of their iPhones.
