Raffi argues that the internet is no place for children. That our children are displaying signs of addiction to the devices. Technology has no place in the hands of children, it is the work of childhood to exist in the real world.
“Decades of child development knowledge tells us what the early years are about, which is active play in the real world with real people, and the theatre of imagination — that great way of trying on the world for size that children are experts at doing. They don’t need a facsimile representation of the world; in fact, that interrupts their ability to do so.”
He is self described as a technology advocate and what he is arguing is that our children are not prepared for the perils of the internet and as the vulnerable people that they are they ought to be protected.
