Technology: Westchester Moms, Staying Connected

Computer Literacy:
Let’s face it: Our children need computer skills to succeed in life. Starting to use the computer at a young age can be very positive. However, as with all technology — from television, to DVD watching, to video games — a healthy dose of parental involvement and supervision is critical. (read the story...)

President of the (Ratings) Board
According to statistics compiled by the Washington D.C.-based Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the average age of computer and video game players is 30 years old. Which means that many of the games on the market are geared toward adults — and a portion of those include content that is inappropriate for children. Smack in the middle of the holiday gift-buying season, with our kids — many game-savvier that we are — clamoring for the newest and hottest options out there, how can we be sure what we’re buying is suitable and safe? (read the story...)

Attack of the Adware!
In science fiction movies, even the littlest child knows you shouldn’t open the door to a stranger — especially if someone is promising candy and toys. On the computer, it’s another story. Kids regularly succumb to the lure of free music, software, and other downloadable goodies. In the process, they open the door to adware, an Internet version of alien invaders. (read the story...)

Should Kids Have Cell Phones?
Do cell phones make kids safer — or more vulnerable? Most parents get kids phones because they seem like a way to keep children safe and connected. After all, with a cell phone, your child can contact you whenever he needs you. Also, you should be able to reach your child (assuming, of course, that she hasn’t lost the cell phone, buried it in a backpack, lent it to a friend, forgotten to turn the ringer on, or decided to ignore it when it turns out to be "just you"). (read the story...)

Zoned-Out or Zoomed-In?DOES YOUR CHILD HAVE AN ELECTRONIC BABYSITTER?
No one really bothers calling television the "boob tube" or "idiot box" anymore, especially with video games to kick around. As one media option of many, TV no longer seems to take all the lumps. Seems is the telling word. The definition of television has changed in some circles. (read the story...)

A PC for Jr.?
Does a child need his or her own computer? That's a question facing many parents today. Just a few years ago, even the most high-tech of families had only one personal computer at home. But today, the family PC is one very busy machine. It's a workstation, a communication tool, a game console and increasingly, a regular part of schoolwork. That's leading many families to consider purchasing a desktop expressly for their child's use. But making a smart tech purchase for your child isn't always an easy task. Here's a quick parent's guide to buying a PC for JR: (read the story...)

Festivities in Miniature
Whether it is the romance of travel or the fascination with technology, traditional visions of the December holidays would hardly be complete without images of a miniature train creeping around the Christmas tree or of children sprawled on the floor lost in an imaginary journey.

Making Holiday Memories, Digitally
In most families, taking photos at the holidays is as much a tradition as baking and wrapping packages. Often, however, roles of festive film are developed mid-January and the prints disappear into albums or, more likely, shoeboxes and desk drawers. Digital cameras are changing all that. By offering instant, inexpensive images, these cameras are transforming the way families think about and enjoy the pictures they take. (read the story...)
