Do you think very young children should play with smart phones, tablets and video games? If so, what is the youngest age for this?

Asked by jca (35994points) April 12th, 2012

Recently, a user asked for recommendations for iPod games for a two year old. There were only a few responses, some positive, some negative. Some people defended having a two year old playing with electronics, some people said there are better ways for a two year old to learn and play.

What do you think? Do you think a very young child (and how young?) should be playing with iPhones, iPods, Kindles, video games and other electronics? Or do you think young children should be engaging in more traditional play only? If you think children should be allowed to play with electronic games, what is the youngest age they should start?
