    At last week’s annual and increasingly massive CES show in Las Vegas, I skipped the razzle-dazzle of thinner TVs, smarter cars and VR headsets.

    Tech will be at the top of many parents’ shopping lists during holiday season, and this year there are far more choices, for a broader span of age ranges, than ever before.

    When my son was young, “technology” was a remote control to shut off his TV program, and a “connected” toy meant one that was plugged into the wall. So it’s with both amazement and delight that I’ve been following the emergence, in recent years, of tech products specifically designed for children and parenting. That fascination is what led Child’s Play […]

    Most of the 170,000 guests at CES 2016 last week checked out the latest developments in driverless cars, virtual reality and artificial intelligence— mind-blowing innovations that in most cases won’t have real impact for years to come. My visit, meanwhile, was much more focused on new products that will directly impact children and parents in the near future. Family tech […]

    When I was a young girl, my mother wanted me to grow up to be a nurse (“doctor” never entered the picture). Not because either of us felt any affinity for the medical profession, but because nursing was, in her mind, the better alternative to the only other field she saw as open to women: teaching.
