Digital technology is entering the lives of children at an increasingly young age. More and more teenagers have iPhones and some primary schools are using iPads in class instead of books. Now, an American company has come up with the iPotty to help parents toilet train their toddlers.

Thankfully, the American academy of pediatrics recommends avoiding screen time for kids under two. Without guidelines, the next app might be aimed at newborns.
