Two happy little balls sit on either side of teeter-totter. As you draw lines you “motivate” the little balls to push the balls to and fro and they roll into each other and make little explosions of happy fireworks. A fun physics lesson and experiment.

Games and Apps are Safer when No WiFi is involved
There’s tons of controversy about the benefits children get from using interactive gaming applications and the flip side--harmful effects to a child’s developing brain, possibly caused by exposure to violence in games or other such undesirable virtual situations. More often than not, these concerns focus on how these smart device applications impact a child’s learning or mental health/ development.
The Expert Says
If you want your kids to develop better sensory-motor skills and better reading skills, screens for kids under 3 should be off limits. Dr. Kimberly Young, notes that kids develop better sensory-motor skills playing with real toys and better reading skills off line.
And Your Kids Avoid Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields or EMF or Radiation . . .
At Tech Wellness, we are also concerned with physiological health: WiFi and Cell signal wireless EMF exposure on little bodies. There are many studies that that show EMF radiation has biological effects. Without a doubt.
This is especially concerning when it comes to children and their developing bodies. The energy from devices penetrates deeper into their brains as a result. In fact this study using models of brain tissue of children 5 to 8 years old, indicated that the maximum SAR in 1 g about two times higher than in adult models. Devra Davis sites several research studies and shows why children absorb more radiation then adults and the consequences of that exposure.
The good news is that radiation coming from the WiFi drops off dramatically with distance. So, use your laptops, tablets and cellphone is Airplane mode and Tech Wellness recommends keeping a minimum of 15 to 20 feet of distance between you and you and the router for safety.
And--Turn off WiFi when you're not using it. That’s why we love our WiFi Switch you don’t need to get close to the wireless radiation from your router and it makes it easy power off anytime. Many parents have shared that they find their children sleep better when the WiFi’s off.
A happy fact is that all EMF exposures drop with distance from the source. YAY! That goes for the wireless radiation and for the magnetic energy waves, which is present with most electronic devices.
To get some more distance from your phone while making a phone call try talking on speaker phone or using a wired airtube headset.
