I really think I am an oddball b/c my kids don't have an iPad/iPod, they have a Wii that they play with maybe a few times a year. I'm not against any of this stuff, I just think they aren't interested. They've been around family/friends with these things and have never asked for one. But at the same time, we don't need an iPad either.
My boys are 5 & 8.
My boys will play some games on the computer - My 5 yo likes his Nick Jr. or Sprout games while my 8 yo prefers games on the school website. They have many educational and fun games on there.
Dh and I both have (Dh got them one afternoon while I shopped for shoes for our kids nextdoor at Famous Footware I didn't care what we got) Dh never uses the internet and barely texts and I will go on the internet everyday for like a few minutes throughout the day to check emails etc.. and I do text more than he does. I guess we're not big on the latest technology. I just learned what a "hot spot" was today.
