How do you keep your kids safe with their mobile devices? Perhaps their safety is the best Father's Day gift you can give them. Great post here:

What did you get your kids for Christmas?

Fast Company had a pretty interesting article a while back on how kids adapt quickly to new tech: http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/144/a-is-for-app.html. Nothing surprising really. I noticed this with my own child as her first real contact with tech was a multi-touch device. It was interesting to see her try to interact with other non-touch screens in this way when she encountered them for the first time.
We're trying to keep their "screen time" limited (and any associated 3G/4G/wireless transmissions), but it's a tough balance between research suggesting we limit said time and letting them develop a comfortable relationship with technology.
