Technology and Kids

Here’s an interesting article from Melinda Gates about the challenges of keeping up with the rapid evolution of technology, especially in terms of setting age-appropriate boundaries and expectations for children.  Gates offers some simple, yet effective strategies for “parents trying to decide how to do their job in a way that feels right despite the bewildering array of changes brought on by smartphones and social media.”  Embedded in this article is a link to “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?”, a recent article from The Atlantic that is worth your time if you haven’t read it yet.
