New Study Finds That More Children Operate A Smart Phone Before They Can Tie Their Own Shoes!

Well, isn't this just terrifying?

A new study has found that more young children know how to play with a smartphone than know how to tie their shoes!

According to the research on children and technology, done by AVG, 19% of children from two to five years old - in the US, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand - can play with a smartphone app, while only 9% know what to do with their effing laces.

Furthermore, more children in that age range can apparently open a web browser than swim on their own, and more can play computer games than ride a bike!

AVG CEO J.R. Smith explains:

“Technology has changed what it means to be a parent raising children today-–these children are growing up in an environment that would be unrecognizable to their parents. As our research shows, parents need to start educating kids about navigating the online world safely at an earlier age than they might otherwise have thought.”

Well, that's good and fine, but we think that you also need to educate kids on navigating the REAL LIFE world, AKA learning skills that will help them engage in physical activity and knowing how to be a functional human being!

Just saying!

BALANCE, people! Help your kids find a balance!

Thoughts??

Lace Up For College With McQueen

Fancy!

Alexander McQueen has come out with a new shoe that would be perfect to wear to a football or baseball game if they weren't so dang tall and expensive.

The tan College Booties sport a 5" heel and go for just a little more than $1150.

We're pretty sure parents would agree getting an education is far more important than looking good. Not to mention a broken ankle.
