I am mum to three little girls who each have their own tastes. The eldest is a ninja wannabe who adores scary animals, Bear Gryllis, and the video game Age of Empires. My middle girl is the exact opposite and prefers pink, glitter, and Hello Kitty. I let them decide their own tastes and do not try to "steer" them along. I encourage them to make good choices as far as purchases and to think about an object's real value, but I do not impose my own feelings about their collections. I am truly terrified of snakes but will gladly let my daughter buy a book about them or take her to see them at the zoo if she wants, the same goes for a trip to get our nails done and such. As long as the girls are using their imaginations and are not just following the crowd, that is good enough for me!

We are of the mindset that not all screentime is created equal and do not limit it in any way because most of the time it is background noise. My girls enjoy watching everything from Mythbusters to Sesame Street and constantly use what they see as a springboard for art projects, questions, and further investigation. I remember as a child watching the TV series The Little House on the Prairie and then reading the books, asking for clothes from that time period, and going horseback riding to be just like Laura Ingalls. In today's world of technology, where jobs depend on how computer savy a person is, I encourage the girls to use all the "screens" we have from iPads to the computer to navigate their world... and then go out and investigate more!

While I understand why it was developed and that is an awesome reason, it is going to be hard to keep them out of the hands of the more fortunate who want to indulge themselves in a little home peeking. Everyone knows that for the right price anyone can buy anything...

ugh! why is this the kind of crap that we as a society put value on? These kids are going to grow up with such a skewed view of the world and will place no value on the things that really matter
