As a geek who loves to try adopting new technology, I agree with @JonathanBunford that we're living in a unique era where even geeks (like us) need to learn how to properly integrate technology into our lives. To keep my sanity, I personally try to filter them and focus only on the right technology that can act as an enabler for my juniors.
As a blogger, I always try to share some of the great iPad apps I find for my juniors. I believe curating the best contents for our juniors is part of parenting as well. Here is a list of Math apps that I believe are great examples for the iPad as an enabler:
As a parent, I have set up time windows where my juniors can interact with the iPad, but for most of the day, they are doing physical activities, interacting with physical toys and family members. Getting my son to a pre-K school also help to teach him social skills, language skills, creative/musical skills and other life skills that an inexperienced parent like me might be neglecting.
I believe all new generations are always challenging to the previous generations, but that's exactly what makes parenting is an eternal topic. Every decade has its own challenges. It's nice to see parents like us stepping up to take the challenge and try to overcome it.
