It's even worse when parents give smartphone to kids before they even understand how to use computer.
My younger cousin is 11 and he doesn't know how to open youtube on a browser, because he always used the app.

Not to hate but these kind of videos and opinions are just outdated because technology is growing and screens become better and more suitable for people. Grow up boomers please, generations are changing.

At the beginning, I wouldn't ask "what's wrong with this magazine?", I would ask why the toddler has it in the first place. it's literally an Marie Claire magazine. they shouldn't have it in the first place. also, that kid's like 1 or 2, so they probably don't know how to read one yet.
also, when I see something interesting on TV, I just watch it. nothing else to it.
(sorry for that whole rant.)
