Gift Ideas for Children of Millennial Parents
The Christmas season is joyous, but when it comest to children, finding a suitable gift idea for toddlers can also be a source of significant stress and deliberation. In 2020, it is not enough to walk down a random Target toy aisle, pick up a colorful toy set and consider your shopping trip complete. Especially if it matters to you that your gift to a toddler is treasured, it would be upsetting to learn that your gift may be played with for a very short time before collecting dust on the shelf. Even worse, if you discover that the toy you’ve gifted is deemed unsuitable by their parents, and is binned, donated or recycled the minute you walk out the door.

To tech or not to tech: Do we go forward or backward?
But judgment aside, it’s also a very interesting article that reflects the tension facing our generation of parents: When it comes to play, do we go forward or backward?Do we engineer for them a childhood reminiscent of our own – with lesser “stuff”and more child play experiences independent from "stuff"? (I say “engineer” because it has to be a conscious effort -- we'd have to consciously stop ourselves from inadvertently too many cheap, unneeded things for them) Or, do we look forward and apply the latest research and technologies to ensure they are ahead of the game?
