Don’t Give Kids Holiday Gifts That Can Spy on Them

During the holiday season, my husband and I tend to offer suggestions to those who are generous enough to insist on buying presents for our kids. Things like “Don’t spend more than $50” and “No guns.” Or, for those with whom we can be comfortably blunt, “Just cash, please.”

The idea is to make gift-giving less stressful and expensive and to make it less likely that the gift givers will waste money on things our kids don’t need — or that we simply would rather they didn’t have.

This year we’re adding a new rule to our list: No toys that can spy. The idea: to keep seemingly innocuous internet-connected devices that may compromise our privacy and security out of our home and especially out of our children’s hands.
