The truth is that toddlers are fascinated with iPads, 'smart' phones, etc.. Young children have no fears when using technology, instead they seem to gravitate to it. CTA Digital has taken toddlers' technology desires and fused it with a new I-Potty. A stand that holds the iPad is connected to the potty chair and seems to suggest more success in children learning to use the potty.
Before you get too excited, remember that the American Pediatric Association has recommended no 'screen' time for children under 2 years old and very limited time for a preschooler. This screen time includes watching television, DVD's, and using computers.
Yet, we can interact during use of an e-book, or iPad, enriching the experience. In our society, we see young children using technology in restaurants and stores — more as a way to keep the child satisfied, with minimumn adult interaction. The i-Potty, I fear, will replace the interactions with adults.
If you are reading this and have an interst in the product, or a stand for children to use when they graduate to an adult-sized toilet, you may find more information at http://m.digitaltrends.com/mobile/ipotty-for-ipad.
