First, choose an age level toddler, preschool, or elementary age. Then, list three positive examples of how technology has enhanced socialization for children in that age group. Give two additional examples of how parents/educators can use technology to further enhance a child’s socialization.
Guided Response:Respond to at least two of your classmates and share an additional example that you believe will compliment their suggestions.
Choose one of the three nonparental care choices: nannies, center-based, or family-based care.

Address the following in your post: socialization, cost, turnover, and any other points that you believe are necessary to sell your childcare option.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates and explain why you think their childcare option is or is not ideal. Also discuss why you would, or would not, use this method for your own toddler.
