With New Parenting Apps, More Dads Are Phoning It In
News from NPR:

Move over, parenting books: Apps are one of the newest ways that dads can learn how to be dads. Dave Burton, creator of the app Quick Tips for New Dads, explains.

MELISSA BLOCK, HOST:

Support for new dads comes in many forms – family, friends, books and oh, yes, there’s an app for that – several actually. One of the latest is designed by a clueless dad for other dads – could be…

DAVE BURTON: Prince William, future King of England, or David Beckham, international footballer, or a bald bloke called Dave.

BLOCK: That’s Dave Burton. Yes, he is bald. He’s also the creator of Quick Tips for New Dads. And since he’s British, the app he refers to nappies, not diapers. His app also covers feeding, bathing, crying – we assume he’s talking about the baby – sleep deprivation – that would be yours – and bonding. It’s something Burton wishes he’d had at his fingertips a couple of years ago when he was a brand-new dad.

BURTON: We’re all stripped-back to that raw basic human nature of we’ve got children in there’s poo and there’s pee and there’s weird stuff going on. An we’re all on a level playing field.

BLOCK: Handy as the app may be, Dave Burton will be the first admi…………… continues on NPR

Is this the future of parenting?
News from CNN:

The Sproutling baby monitor system includes an ankle bracelet, environmental sensor and mobile app.
  • The Sproutling baby monitor tracks heart rate, position and body temperature using an ankle bracelet
  • Parents get insights and tips into their child through a mobile app
  • The $ 250 device will be available in 2015

(CNN) — Babies are unpredictable, messy and constantly changing. Sleep-deprived parents struggling to make sense of their tiny humans’ behaviors are starting to take a scientific approach, collecting data in the hopes of solving problems like not sleeping through the night.

Ankle monitors are typically associated with criminals on house arrest, but the latest gadget for this generation of tech-saturated parents mimics the shackles of old — in much friendlier colors.

The Best Parenting Advice I Ever ReceivedSmile. A lot.
News from ChristianityToday.com:

People sometimes ask me what I’ve “done right” with Penny. They ask because Penny reads and goes to ballet class and practices piano and orders her own meal when we eat at a restaurant. They ask because she is “high functioning.” I suspect many people assume we’ve coached her well or stimulated her brain with special gizmos or put in hours of hours of extra therapy. We’ve certainly done our best, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the therapists and doctors who have helped and advised us along the course of her life. But I know plenty of parents who have done more for their kids and whose kids don’t appear, from the outside, as capable as Penny. The only thing I am willing to say that we have “done right” is to smile at her. To take great delight in who she is.

It started when Penny was three months old. Peter and I left her at home with my mother. I brought my breast pump with me to the conference, a one-day series of inspirational and informative talks for parents of children with Down syndrome. It was there—in that crowded auditorium, filled with eager and anxious parents scribbling notes—that I heard a lecture from Dr. Gerard Mahoney about something called “Responsive Teaching.”

News from LiveScience.com:

Parenting has gotten harder in the digital age, experts say

Cellphones, tablets, video games and computers — the average youngster has logged thousands of hours on digital technologies by the time they leave home.

And all these technologies have changed the way parents do their jobs.

Though digital technology allows parents to entertain or keep tabs on their youngsters, for the most part, all of these apps and websites have created more decisions, more research (to figure out what’s kid-friendly and what’s not) and more rules to negotiate with their children, often on the fly, media researchers say.

In many ways, digital technologies have made parenting harder, experts say. [continues on LiveScience.com
