A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

The site presents online activities as an essential part of a baby's life and a necessity for parents trying to keep their little ones entertained. However, some websites also introduce unique concepts which may be beneficial for development.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

Many of the recommended sites are selling products, mainly to parents.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that many experts don't think babies, or toddlers for that matter, should be spending any time in front of a computer. The concern is that time online takes away from serious brain-building activities found in real world exploration. Parents should also be aware that just because the sites on this web resource are recommended, doesn't mean they shouldn't be first inspected by a parent. Cubeecraft, for example isn't exactly for kids, with a cast of movie character paper crafts that includes some scary R-rated ones. Overall the linkss are generally safe, but many are from commercial sites eager to pitch products to parents.

Is it any good?

With the idea that there's no time to waste when you need to entertain a fussy baby or cranky toddler, BABY GAMES ONLINE  fast-tracks parents right to the online action. That means clicking on a link brings up an actual activity, no homepages, no teasers, just straight fun and games. It's a great concept that will definitely maximize the enjoyment level for both parent and child. Designed by parents looking for quality baby-tainment sites, links are rated for their quality and a nice mix is presented of both traditional go-to sites, like Fisher Price and The Boohbahs, along with hidden gems such as the "Paint Like Jackson Pollack" site and Mo Willems' Hot Dog dress-up game. Parents should also find solace in the lullabies section and "white noise" sites, which look to solve sleep problems common to this age group.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what age to begin introducing the computer and Internet to their children. When you do, what will be your time limits and what will you go on for?

  • Families can talk about limiting screen time for babies and toddlers. In what ways do you use technology to entertain very young children? Can you think of alternatives that don't involve technology?

  • Families can talk about marketing to moms and dads. Children are often targets of advertising, but what about when they are too young to make the buying decisions? How are parents persuaded to buy baby toys and toddler technology? Do you think these products really help with brain development as the products often claim?
