A few words on apps

The New York Times Bits Blog reports that the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood has filed complaints with the Federal Trade Commission against Fisher-Price and Open Solutions for claims the latter organizations make on behalf of their mobile apps for infants. A quote:

[t]he programs could take time away from activities, like hands-on creative play or face-time with caring adults, that have proven benefits for infant learning.

I say, Take no chances!

Talk math with your kids!

If you don’t let a day go by without reading to them, then don’t let a day go by without asking, How many? or What shape?
