Why I bought my toddler an iPad

toddler an iPad
Whether to buy a toddler an iPad/tablet/Kindle/whatever-other-devices-I-can't-think-of-right-now is a debate that can rage fiercely between parents. Some horrified by the idea, some giving their newborn an electrical device of some kind. I'm not here to tell you which is right, where the line should be drawn and I'm not even going to put my little toe into the arena of the classic debate: How much screen time is too much screen time?
