Is kids using electronic devices uniformly considered a bad thing?

Well... in that particular situation, I would hope that I would have already figured out how to control the child. Then there most likely wouldn't have been a problem in the first place.

However, I probably would have approached the situation more as a reward with the electronics. "You sit here quietly and after we get on the plane and the plane is in the air, I'll let you play with the iPad". I probably would have something else like a children's book or something, to occupy the child until boarding the plane, and waiting for take-off.

So, IMO electronics are only bad if you are using them as a babysitter or pacifier. I think they are wonderful as a reward. But that could go for just about anything, not just electronics. It depends on what the child is interested in... holding back the "most interesting item" as the reward item.

EDIT: Oh, and a big mistake I see many parents make... one has to stick with what they said. If the child didn't do as they were told... you don't just give them the iPad anyway. As a matter of fact I wouldn't let them play with it for the whole day. One needs to reinforce "I mean what I say, and you will obey". After a while they catch on that you won't put up with their shit, and become much more manageable.
