The survey, conducted in late 2010, surveyed more than 2200 mothers with internet access and who had children at ages 2 to 5 years.
With the changing scenario of early childhood education in comparison to 30 years ago, it is noted that children today learn more from technology than with ordinary activities.
The survey noted that children of mothers with more than 35 years (40%) already knew how to write their own name, while children of mothers under 34 years (35%) could not write.
Today 58% of children know how to play computer games, but only 20% know how to swim or ride a bicycle (43%).
Among respondents, only 9% claimed to know a tennis shoe or tie. But 19% had no trouble using applications on smartphones.
Experts note that having this knowledge in IT will be good for children in the future, but stressed the importance of monitoring computer use to prevent an escalation of violence ??? in cases where parents do not control the privacy of information that the children circulating on the Internet ??? and potential problems of social life.
Although 28% of boys and 29% of the girls knew to make a call by phone, only 20% of them could use the phone for 911 emergency cases.
And that’s what they make velcro laces for right?!
