Parents should be role model for children in use of technology

During a recent visit to a local Apple retail store with my children, who are in elementary and middle school, I noticed a mother holding her 2-year-old son at the iPad tablet display. The young toddler was intently and intuitively tapping at the icons on the screen and opening software applications (apps) on his own. The mother said that her son uses the iPad just as much as she does at home. She downloads apps specifically designed for babies to learn numbers and letters. This is the wired generation. Kids seem to instinctively know how to navigate computer screens and learn new programs quickly and easily, from a young age. Electronic devices are a natural part of growing up now.
