New Delhi: If you are a super busy working parent, chances are that you may end up handing your child a gadget (TV remote or smartphone) when you're back home. You know this is harmful and you shouldn't be doing this, but can't you help as your mind is still pre-occupied with work-related things and pressures.
And as children get hooked on to the gadgets, replacing the much cherished time and space which was meant for the parents, they have no time for other pursuits.
While gadgets turn out to be a great bribery tool for busy parents for keeping their kids quiet and engaged at home, electronic devices can actually negatively impact your child's brain development.
