Many parents rationalize that a tablet or smartphone will make their kid smarter.
Nevertheless, tablets and smartphones are not making your kid smarter.
However, if you think you’re raising your young child’s I.Q. by giving him an iPad (a tablet), you may be mistaken. Just the opposite is true. And depending on the digital boundaries you give your teenagers, the same can be true for them as well.
But, one sure-fire way of raising the I.Q. of any person at any age—especially children—is to teach them to play a musical instrument. So, I’m recommending that every child—from the earliest age possible—learn to play the instrument of their choice. And I have no problem with parents making their kids do this for at least the first year or two. After that, if Junior genuinely believes it to be a form of torture, then at least you’ve helped raise his I.Q. for something else that might truly interest him.
