Yahoo Shine Ask's Question: What Is The Right Age to Get Technified?

Yahoo has a new site called "Shine", which is one-stop place for women to go on the web. I went to the press event and will discuss more about the site, but for now I wanted to pass on this post from Charlene Prince Birkeland (Shine staff) called "The Digital Dish: Is there a "right" age to let your kid get technified?".

It brings up a good question I have discussed often.  I always respond t to wait until your kid asks, otherwise let them play and have live social/sports interaction instead. But if they do ask, the first stop should be a honest discussion about internet safety and education (geared towards their age). Then it is good to spend time finding software that fits their needs. I will post later with some new sites I have found that my 9 year old plays that are filled with fun math games.
