We've just gotten into preschool aps and our little guy can navigate his way around amazingly well. The other day he had opened my Pandora radio and found the station he liked without any instruction. This Tap Tap Revenge sounds like something we need to check out, it sounds fun!

The bad words thing? We've never had an issue, even though J has been known to let a swear word slip here and there, so have I on occasion. I do not look forward to the days that my own kids use profanity like my students do. I hope that day never comes!

Scooter used to parrot curse words, but he seems to understand when we say "that's not a word for kids." (I've learned to filter my speech from teaching, but Trillian still has trouble with that.)

I don't know the song here, but I looked up the lyrics. The use of the h-word here seems to be poetic juxtaposition here--though I bet L. isn't all that interested in poetic analysis at this point. I still have a thing about gratuitous cursing (probably due to a similar rules issue), but this use seems acceptable.

Oh, I'm pretty much a prude when it comes to gratuitous cursing and I've been known to turn off movies if there's two much of some certain words...yes, I'm with you on the use of the h-word as poetic juxtaposition--I guess that's why I let it slide!

There are some great preschool apps, Omaha--T. loves one called Kids Calc and she's getting really good at it!
