“There is an increasing demand for digital devices for children, especially in schools to provide an engaging form of education.” ref
Children never stop learning. 
My children are inseparable from their iOS devices at home. Minecraft has quickly replaced playing with Lego. Watching videos on YouTube has even replaced watching Netflix.
I find that balance is key. When I get home from work, they do ask to play with me. They do want to go on the trampoline, or read a book with me.
I also get texts from my children when they get home from school and they feel like they want to talk. That’s what technology is good for. In some ways, I feel like I’m better preparing them for the world they’re growing up in. 
I know that they’ll pick the most exciting thing, so I just need to make sure that it isn’t always something on a screen. There’s a whole world out there and so many things to go out to experience and enjoy.
