I think it should be the opposite of this story. Children are too exposed and open with knowledge and toys they don't understand what they are doing. Would I have the chance to choose a childs access to the world, it would not be through the internet or broadcast technology or iPhone or dumb phones or TV. Iconology is not an education, its diminished learning implanting no knowledge or information in their minds.

Why are parents being told to empower business and schools and government to tier children? This is dangerous and the leading edge of dysfunctional families and children. Digital technology is limited by its design not to be good for education or society or the economy.

Computers and human brains do not learn or function in any similarity and using programed technology is stealing knowledge and human superiority from childrens minds. The human brain is far superior to an iPhone or ipad or computer and these children are being taught that the computer is smarter than they are.

Convenience is robbing people of their lives, their money, and their sense of values.

Convenience is the path of ignorance, not knowledge.

@ My2Cents: Interesting to have you decry the internet and computers as you use them to share your views with the world.

Children will need to know how to use computers and the internet in order to function in the world - especially if they intend to attend college and have a decent paying job.

And if there are no computers or the internet in the home, the kids will access them at the library, school, or a friend's house.

It is better for parents to participate and be up-to-date than for them to be in denial.
