Of course, however, the PARENTS don't notice this because they look at the Tamagotchi and compare it to other handheld devices like Gameboys, DS's, and cell phones: nothing but a distraction and an annoyance. There are a few, however, that actually raise and enjoy Tamagotchi pets (I salute you all! xD)...
However, as some have stated in this topic, some parents bought some for their kids to actually teach responsibility. I guess it really depends on how the parents look at it. Because Tamagotchis can be a distraction, but at the same time, they are still educational.
But Tamagotchis aren't that distracting. I mean, you can pause them if they are getting in the way of other education.
As I have stated, they are educational and have benefits.

Except with me it was backwards... My mom said if you take care of the dog, you can get a Tamagotchi, but oh well... Guess I'm just backwards that way.

I do think Tamas are educational, because, assuming that the child knows angel means death, The child will do everything in his or her power to care for it and not kill it.

Some kids think they are living breathing animals that need to be taken care of, others, not so much. So what I am getting at is basically, yes and no. They obviously weren't meant to be educational, but they are. Bandai did a good job, lets leave it at that, eh?
I can see my science teacher letting us use Tamagotchi's for a project. I own enough to lend him a few of mine, plus I am sure my parents would chip in, mainly because, my dad likes to see if they are dead yet (He is so nice, is he not?) and what character you get. My mom, she is different, but still. I was thinking about asking him too. He could talk to all of our teachers, get us passes that allow us to use our Tamagotchi's during school, and after, lets say, a week, report on how they are doing back to him. It is fun (Which he is) and educational. I have a million reasons why we should do this in school, and when I get off break, I will ask him about it. I will label my Tamagotchi's she lend them to him, not that I couldn't tell which ones were mine.
Getting back on topic, I say yes and no. Not much else to say. ;D

Sure it's teaching them! You have to try to take care of 'em!
Okay... okay... everyone (almost) around Tamatalk usually brings up at one time or another, Tamagotchis are educational! But are they? Do they teach children (notice how I said CHILDREN...) responsibility? Or are they only little addicting toys? *sheads a single tear* What do YOU (LOL) think?!?
*THIS is not a ROTFL type moment...*
