This is a very interesting article and should be read by poor parents who stick gadgets in the faces of their kids before they can even walk.
As access to devices has spread, children in poorer families are spending considerably more time than children from more well-off families using their television and gadgets to watch shows and videos, play games and connect on social networking sites, studies show.
Indeed, the NYT notes that “children and teenagers whose parents do not have a college degree spent 90 minutes more per day exposed to media than children from higher socioeconomic families.” So while the educated elites ply their children with arts and crafts and shit like that (I guess, what other stuff is there to do?), the poors are wasting their time consuming the mental junk food pumped out by… websites such as this one. Or, I mean, more like Buzzfeed, probably. Trash.
