Did You Know…

Back in the 1990’s studies have shown that kids learnt to play Super Mario Bros before they learned to ride a bike. Fast forward to 2014 and the trend is still very much the same. According to a study by AVG Technologies, young children are more adept at technology than some basic life skills.

In a poll conducted in 2013 of 2,200 mothers with Internet access and children between 2 and 5 years old, more children knew how to play video games (58%) than knew how to ride a bike (43%). If riding a bike seems a little too hard, how about more kids knowing how to play with a Smartphone (19%) than tying their own shoelaces (9%) or making it to the toilet in time (7%)!
