The Media Diet

There seem to be some conflicting views among parents of young kids when it comes to exposing our children to technology.  I say set clear limits but teach them to navigate the iPad, a laptop, or other similar devices because they are growing up in a tech savvy world (like it or not).  Some say a little TV is ok, but avoid the rest.  And others say no media at all…these young minds need only to activate their imaginations.  What do you think?
