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.
