Alyona Mikhailova, a child health expert at the Invitro-Ural laboratory, told journalists about the consequences of actively incorporating electronic devices into children's leisure time.

"Bright, fast-moving pictures disturb the formation of the visual apparatus, give stress to the immature nervous system. Substitution of communication with native adults for viewing gadgets disrupts the formation of emotional connections and values of the child. ... Early use of gadgets inhibits the development of communication skills", - said Plena Mikhaylova.

In addition, she noted that children under the age of 3 years old should explore the world around them, rather than explore the virtual world, and from 3 to 7 years should spend more time on role-playing games, which will not only contribute to the development of creativity, but also to improve other skills.
