0 Have your say Three-year-old children do not need the substitute parent of their own tablet computer, writes Jane Bradley. Do you have your own tablet? I don’t. We have a single tablet in our house, shared amongst all of us.Of course, there are other internet-connected devices around – phones, a laptop comupter, that kind of thing. But I do not have my own, state-of-the-art, personal iPad. This, according to the latest data out this week from Ofcom, makes me more technologically disadvantaged than almost a fifth of three and four-year-olds.Yes, you read it right: 19 per cent of three and four-year-olds – barely more than babies – have their very own tablet, where they watch the likes of YouTube and CBeebies, play games and “go online”.
