First, give up on the idea of there being 'perfect' parenting. There
isn't. We're human, and we pretty much made it up as we went along.
The kids made it through, we must have done some stuff correct. As for my I pad,
well it's mine, not the kids to mess with. They can buy their own in due
course; those chubby fingers are chubby for a reason so stay away from the
gadgets and get out of the house and run around a bit.
The "touch screen generation" is an apt description, when at our desktop
PC, our son tries to slide things the way he would on our "kindle".
