Child Development and Technology McKayla Hooten

The structures in the brain that determines the way an individual will think and process for the rest of his/her life are formed within the first four years of life.

From their environment, children learn how to respond to the emotions they are developing during this time.

Family interactions play an important part in child's social and mental development.

Within the family setting, children learn how to form lasting relationships, develop emotionally, and learn social skills.

Between the ages of 0 and 4 children develop creativity and problem solving skills.

The overuse of technology during these crucial developmental years can leave children lacking in needed social and mental skills.
