Funny thing that you mention the iPad. Just this week we mentioned that it’s a big benefit that we don’t use tablets at the moment.
In regards to posting pictures online, we never post pictures of her face online. Face recognition technology is advancing rapidly so I wouldn’t be surprised that in the near future software can calculate from an adult face backwards and find a person’s child pictures. I don’t want a US company to have more biometrical information of my kid in their database than my government has. And then there is the weird web which likes to remix stuff for fun. I’ve seen pictures shared as a joke, of little kids with adult penises photoshopped over their diapers. I’d rather not risk my kid being laughing stock for immature adults.
Don’t expect too much thoughts on parenting and technology here though. We just go with the flow and manage use of technology using common sense.
