Technology is without a doubt both one of the greatest advantages and one of the most complicated challenges for modern parents. We find ourselves trying to balance healthy screen limits and online safety with being sure our kids are technologically literate. After all, for better or worse, they'll be navigating a world filled with screens, and there's no sense in shutting them off from that reality entirely Aside from the health and safety issues, the prospect of buying a toddler a tablet is also one fraught with financial peril - kids may or may not be as enchanted with a gadget's screen resolution or turbo-charged processing chip as they are in determining what the tablet tastes like, or what might happen if it were to be launched out the window of a moving vehicle With the Kindle Fire HD Kids' Edition tablet, Amazon has finally given us a true kids' tablet instead of a tablet-shaped toy.
