Ever since we started noticing how easily toddlers took to the tactile nature of smart gadgets, parents all over the world began to wonder what kind of effect it would have on them. Studies were initiated bit it was all too soon and could not simply keep up with the rate that technology was evolving. In more recent times, it has been suggested that our own adult brains have been slowly changed over the past decade due to how we’ve been using out devices.

FOLDING NO MORE Folding clothes is one of those chores that you seem to be endlessly doing, one that seems to grow exponentially per child and especially per activity said child(ren) partake in. One of the gadgets that caused a buzz in CES 2019 was the foldimate, a printer looking contraption that will fold clothes for you, raking up piles of neatly folded shirts, trousers etc. in no time. So, an invaluable help or an over-the-top luxury? A wallet hole the size of $980 will help you decide. The foldimate will be released late 2019.

Eggs-ceptional Popularity Why was an egg in the news? In a rather bizarre start to 2019, an picture of egg became the most popular instagram post in history, gaining more than 25 million likes in just 10 days, beating previous record holder Kylie Jenner (ask your kids).

Baby Shusher If you aren’t in the bedroom with your baby but want to “shush” them to sleep, you could always go for the Baby Shusher device, which basically makes the same sound as you going “shush”. Babies find this terribly relaxing and nod off. The baby shusher is also available as a collection including the basic device, together with two soft cotton Muslin Swaddles and two Shushie pacifiers to comfort your baby and help comfort them to sleep. The Galaxy Clock Ceiling projectors are all the rage but some have been found to captivate a baby, and actually prevent them from sleeping properly as they gaze at whatever is moving in front of them.

how yoga benefits your kids

“...BEING FLEXIBLE OR AT LEAST HAVING THE WILLINGNESS TO BECOME MORE FLEXIBLE WILL BE IMPORTANT.” You may think that a child would not have as much stress as an adult since they do not have as many responsibilities as an adult.

Additionally, being raised in a technology-crazed world, where everything is happening fast and patience runs thin if it isn’t happening fast enough, can lead to anxiety. Therefore, children need to learn as early as possible, constructive ways of dealing with the demands and pressures of life from they are young, so that it becomes second-nature to them when they are adults. One valuable method of teaching kids how to…
