The days of the abacus are long gone - replaced by abacus apps. Stuffed animals are being replaced by app pals like Calls from Elmo. For better or worse, the way children play and learn has changed and privacy remains a concern as technology becomes a larger part of their daily lives. Parents and children want access to the latest, greatest technology and apps. However, federal laws restrict common app features (analytics, email, rate this app) in anything online directed to children under the age of 13. Developers are eager to provide parents and children the latest and greatest. Regulators are eager to sue anyone that collects personal information from kids without consent. Do we really have to choose between innovation and children's privacy?
