We’re shopping the other day and our three-year-old daughter, who already has her own deactivated Blackberry hand-me-down so she can be “just like mom and dad” she says, takes her Blackberry out in the shopping cart and tells us that she’s “checking her email.”
Really? It’s for real and reminded me of a funny article from a few years back about how a child stumped a Blackberry executive during a shareholders’ meeting by asking: “Are you going to make a phone more for kids so that my Mom will let me get one?” Read it here.
When I was her age I was lucky to be watching UHF television. She wants to check her email already, which means that she’ll want her own Facebook page, Twitter and Google Plus page by the time she’s five?
