    We have a 3rd gen iPad in a big spongy protective case. The grandkids share it when they visit. But none of them are allowed to just sit and play with it. They take turns, and we limit their time with it. They need to run and play, but they also need to use/learn with tech toys/tools, too.

    My son is a little young to use any technology properly, but I certainly won't keep him away from it entirely. The iPad and Facetime are fantastic for letting him see his grandparents, and playing a video serves as a good occasional distraction. As with most things in life, moderation is key.

    That article, to me, was silly because at no time did Steve Jobs ever say that he didn't "allow" his kids to use the products, he simply responded that his kids had not received or used the iPad (as it had just come out when the interview happened). They basically put words into his mouth that he never said...

    Personally, I don't have children...but if I did, they'd have limitations on time spent on the devices, but I certain;y wouldn't keep them from using them period.

    My kids have iPods and share an iPad with the rest of the family. They use it for school and for play but they are all active and always choose to play sports or something outside above a gadget. It's just how they are being raised. I don't have to put restrictions on gadgets since they have always been encouraged to stay active.

    Both of my kids have iPods and tablets. They don't take the best care of them, however....

    I agree with you all.. We should restrict our kids to a certain limit in using iPad or any other gadget. Their lives shouldn't be totally revolving around all these. I too don't have kid(s) so far but I will try to keep them away from gadgets as much as I can and as long as I can.

    Outdoor games, activities are so necessary.. Helps them in getting them stronger and confident.

    My kids both have iPad minis and have had them since they were 5 & 9. They are now 7 & 11 so they've had them almost two years. They treat them well though.

    My dad finds it annoying whenever I'm in the same room as him and I'm using my phone or my iPod.

    My daughter is 6 and has a iPad mini and iPod touch... She is only allowed to use it under limited times but she has them. I hear schools here are going to start making iPads mandatory in some classes next year so she's got a one up anyways
