#QOTD: What is your favorite restaurant right this second?
If you were to go back to a caveman and ask him what he thinks of our media consumption today, he would reject it. it would be weird and unnatural. But the fact of the matter is that it's where we are today, and technology is just a part of our world. I'm not the dad who is going to tell my kids to "get off the computer and go play!" Frankly our kids are already eating a hell of a lot better than we ever did at that age.
Kids are just growing up to be different characters than we are. Information is a commodity, so they're not going to be as "fact-smart" as we were, but they're going to be much more intuitive about learning how to use new systems.
Sure I'm worried about them being active enough, but if you're a good parent you can make your kids do literally whatever you want. What I'm *not* going to do, though, is restrict Xander's time on the iPad.
