FTFA "They spend less time doing educational activities, with 8- to 10-year-olds spending about half the time with educational content that 2- to 4-year-olds do. "

At 8-10, there is an entire new world of entertaining video games and there is a lack of educational software that is fun.  The balance tips around 5-6 years old.

"Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?" needs a reboot goddamnit. FP detective game.

Yeah, well if they were really "parents" they would "parent" and nix that crap right in the kibosh pit.
Being a breeder doesn't automatically make one a "parent"
let alone a good one.

Kick your little crotch crabs outside and make them read a book outside.
Out side, where the world is.

Not on a a screen. Like a farking zombie.

And they don't need farking cell phones, either. Tie a farking onion on their belts, and tell them it's the new style.
then kick then outside.
