Many kids today have a multitude of options for keeping themselves entertained. Wiis, iPads, portable DVD players.
Some parents steer their kids away from technology in favour of more "wholesome" activities like drawing, painting, reading books.
Sonali Karnick spoke with two people who have their own ideas about what parents should be encouraging their kids to do in their leisure time and it's even more high-tech than anything you may have considered.
KateArthur and Gersande La Flèche of Kids Coding Canada think children should learn to code or write their own programs for computers. It's something children don't learn in school and they want to change that.

Alexandra Grimanis and her 8-year-old daughter Evan reviewed Jennifer Low's Everyday Kitchen for Kids the latest edition of All In A Weekend's Cookbook Club.
Evan lead the charge in testing more than 24 recipes from the book, including her first taste of curry and a new way to spice up carrots. They spoke with Sonali Karnick about what they thought of the book and how Evan's palette is now a little more exotic!
