Should there be an age restriction on technology?

I think 5 year olds and under should NOT be able to use technology. What do you think?

    It should not have an age base absolute restriction, but better awareness and tools for parents to guide technology experinece. Technology is changing the way we think about the world and more and more there is an expectation for younger users, technology developers, and innovators.

  • I agree with agsr, it should have a restriction and be accessible to a large fraction of the Earth's population.
  • Many technology billionairs specifcally ensure that their kids dont get exposed to too much technology. I think everyone should have access, but it should be moderated by parents.
  • I think restriction on how much 5 year olds (or even teenagers) can use technology - absolutely.
    banning use all together - no.

    No, just be a good parent and don't let your child do anything stupid or dangerous. Should little Billy be playing with mummy's special toys? Probably not, so make sure he doesn't. It's the parents responsibility to ensure the safety of their child, and age restricting technology just unnecessarily prevents people from being able to use things for no reason.

    It all depends on how you define technology. For example, my 2-year old has a stuffed dog that is capable of singing. She also used to have an activity cube that on one side would sing certain songs, a side would help with learning to count, etc.. Technically these are both forms of technology, but I can't see the issue with them. I fully believe technology should not be used as a replacement to parenting, but I can certainly use it as a tool.

    @Sylynn, agreed.  Technology is embedded in everything, so we cannot completely avoid it's use for small kids. It is important for parents to ensure it's used in moderation though
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
