“Technology is not the problem it’s the way it’s being used,” Kriger said, noting when kids and parents are on the computer and not talking to each other it’s detrimental. He indicated a study conducted by the Academy of Pediatrics which determined children under 2 years of age should not be in front of electronics because the images that they see are so rapid that it basically overwhelms the developing brain. Kriger said another study shows how only nine minutes of watching “SpongeBob SquarePants” can hinder the ability to delay gratification.
