I thought this was fascinating! Interesting input from the new generation. Mostly I love the creativity of these kids!
The Laptop Club
When is your kid old enough to use a computer? Even “wired” moms are leery of letting the little ones go at it lest they become addicted, but now comes The Laptop Club, a bunch of 7-to-9-year-olds (mostly girls) at a North Carolina Montessori after-school program, who draw their own keyboards on construction paper and wear them out with constant use. These kids came up with this idea without adult coaching. “….the paper laptops have keyboard buttons assigned to “Barbie.com,” “best friends” next to “friends,” “HP [Harry Potter] trivia.”
