    Oh okay. We have around 20 free channels, silly me for assuming that was the norm, haha. (mind you, it was only 6 a few years back)

    Hey, so I got this app when my child was born. I was searching for when I should expect him to start walking and found this. It has something like 200 milestones on it! Now I know when my kid should be able to dress himself, know his colors etc. Great way to guide you in watching your kid grow. I hope you enjoy!

    We use YouTube for educational purposes. Our boy is very young but the sing-along songs are fun and educational. I think finding a good mix is best, don't let them sit in front of the computer or TV all day, mix in some outdoor fun time. But there's a lot to learn via tablets, computers, etc. You just need to be aware of where they are online.

    Yes, these days technology is a life saver. Nowadays people live in nuclear families and experiencing a child for the first time, is generally alone for them. They have no adults or relatives around who will answer their doubts. So people turn to google to find out answers. It is a life saver.

    I can't agree more with everybody's opinion. Technology no doubt is something we can't do without. As much as the boundless advantages available in the world of technology, there re as much danger in it too. My kids love chatting and playing games. But katherine loves music more and not much into game. All i try do is do most of this things with them in a friendly way. I play games with my kids often and even give him some chatting tips and all. By this, i get to know who their friends are and try as much to keep them away from bad influence.
    On the game part, it actually helped me in dealing with my boys academic some time ago. He was not doing well in maths at all. And he doesn't even like studying it. I began my search on google for a possible way out. I eventually found a maths game that has tremendously helped him. It makes teaching maths fun and at the same time broaden his quantitative reasoning. Here is the link if anyone is interested http://tinyurl.com/86varzt . I just think we should try and be using those things they love doing to their benefits in a positive way.

    It's harder and harder to raise kids in this day of age without influences from smart phones / tablet / notebook.

    I installed an application on my phone to control my 3 year old from using the phone or tablet for excessive long time than permitted.

    I got it from the link below for Android phone. I think they are making for iPhone but not yet released.

    I truly believe that technology plays a huge positive andnegative role in parenting and life. For one if someone is looking for some qualitative data, technology is awesome...I mean we are all here right?! We are here for stories, experiences, advice and connections and most of us would not be talking if not for our laptops and wifis (or whatever!). However I have a real fear of technology related to obtaining pure hard facts, such as medical issues etc. Now I have searched things online about my lil one, however, I see on a daily basis people in the hospital screaming at doctors and nurses about something they read on wikipedia about their moms illness and our ignorance. In the wrong hands and skill sets these sites can be very dangerous! Some sites provide home remedies and advice that can be dangerous and people really need to take care where and what information is coming from!!!! I recently had a critical patient with infection throughout his body because he read on line about maggot treatment for wounds....so he let food go bad and sit out....waited for maggots to arrive and place them on his heel wounds to eat away necrosis....not a good idea!!

    I think the sacrifice has not nearly been worth the gain. Don't get me wrong, I can't blame it all on technology. After all, we were all too willing to accept it. I blog a lot about the negative affects we must all carry as our way of life and into the generations being born into this distracted life. For those interested, go to www.blog.paperbanking.com See if you find anything of value there. If so, I hope you'll subscribe. Paperbanking is the only solution that makes sense in our lives with our babies.

    Technologies help in lots of ways. When my niece was less than a year old my sister always used mobile cameras in order to watch her online while Mom is outside cooking or doing something around the house.
    Internet helps with vital information, moreover, you always have a chance to find a real free specialist online and get help if you need it.
    Now when my niece is 8 years old sheís got her personal cellphone and my sister can control what she does with it using special apps, thatís so cool! We can find her anywhere if she gets lost and even block some certain webpages and apps. Peep in here if interested http://www.phonespyapps.com/reviews/ Iím not quite sure if itís the same webpage she used, but the first app in the list is the one my sister always uses.

    Technology and parenting... Without technology chances are that I would be jobless right now. I am a mother of two young children. Thanks to technology I am able to work from home in the very presence of my two lovely babies. And by the way,now that we are discussing parenting and technology - who has tried out Snuza Hero Baby Monitor? Would love to hear your thoughts about it.
