How Do Children Use Tablets

According to a Nielsen survey, 70% of households with children under 12 have kids using a tablet. Their activities on the tablet vary somewhat, but many play downloaded games as entertainment at the restaurant. We have a 5 year-old girl that uses our iPad for 30 minutes a day on average, and a 3 year-old boy using it about the same. The #1 item on kids Christmas list was the iPad for a reason.

Our kids rarely use the iPad outside of the home, since we rarely bring it along for an hour car ride or for the purpose of entertainment. I think the iPad is probably a good babysitter for the "only child", but sharing it doesn't seem to work well for us. :)
