My daughter is nearing five months now, and on an endless fit of screaming/crying over the weekend, I finally got her quiet with a video on my phone. On the same car trip, I didn't hear a peep from my son who found plenty of games and movies on my PlayBook to keep him occupied.
Way back when we didn't have the luxury insane amounts of electronics as kids. We were stuck with a few decent TV shows, some color books and maybe a Viewmaster. Now, kids everywhere are spoiled rotten with the plethora of devices to keep them occupied. I do find that having a tablet around "for the kids" is a great thing. We actually have an extra PlayBook just for them so I don't have to worry about my own being dropped, chewed on or ending up in the toilet.
Our question today is this: Do you let your kids use your phone or tablet? I don't really lend out my phone to anyone - including my kids (and that will hold especially true with BlackBerry 10). Do you let them use it whenever they want? Do they have their own? Is your phone hands-off? Pick the option in the poll above that best suits you, then leave a comment below letting us know why.
