 When it comes to how much technology is too much for your child, as a parent, you are in charge of deciding on that. If you believe that your child should be exposed to technology and would like to know how to do that by using it to help benefit your child and ready him or her for school, then The Tutoring Center in West Caldwell has some tips for you today.

There are several educational apps you can find for your computer or tablet.  You will do well if you look for those that help introduce your child to reading in order to improve his or her language skills and development. The more practice your child gets, in as many forms possible, the more he or she will be prepared for the challenges of school. You can start with games that help your child identify letters and spell words. As your child progresses you can get short reading books and even entire novels for your child to enjoy.

When it comes to allowing your child to play games, you’ll also be able to find several educational options online. Understand that many games geared toward children are task oriented. In order to move on from one level to the next it is necessary to complete certain tasks such as gathering items or getting a certain amount of points. What this will do for your child is help him or her begin understanding the importance of finishing tasks. Although at first it will only be in relation to the game, you can then relate that with life in general.

You can also expect that your child will increase his or her hand-eye coordination while participating in games online or apps. Objects often need to be moved from one area of the screen to another, and sometimes require great accuracy, depending on the level of the game. Of course taking your child into the yard to throw the ball around or even coloring can help to improve hand-eye coordination as well, there is no harm in multiple options to practice and improve.

As your child is getting ready to enter school, you can not only take these pieces of advice concerning technology, you can also check out some of our other posts, such as the one on homework strategies.
