Kids Can Use Smartphones Before They Learn To Write Their Names And Tie Their Shoes, Survey Says

AVG, a computer security software company , surveyed 6,017 parents from the U.K., U.S., France, Germany, Spain, Czech Republic, Australia, Brazil, Canada and New Zealand to see just how digitally connected kids are. They found that children as young as 2 years old are becoming online natives faster than ever, possibly before they hit basic developmental milestones. According to the parents polled, a whopping 89 percent of their 6-to-9-year-olds are active online. Internationally, 46 percent of kids spend more time in a virtual world like Webkinz or Club Penguin than any other online activity. Additionally, 65 percent of kids spend more than two hours online each week -- the U.S having the highest percentage of kids, 12 percent, spending more than ten hours per week online. But here's where the findings get really interesting... 66 percent of kids ages 3-to-5 can play a computer game, but only 58 percent are able to ride a bike. 38 percent in that age range can write their full names and 14 percent can tie their shoes ( a skill that's usually mastered by age 6 ), compared to 57 percent who know how to operate a tablet. 47 percent of little kids are able to operate a smartphone while parents reported only 26 percent know how to make their own breakfast.

Footy boots for kids campaign

Aboriginal children playing AFL at The Gunbalanya School. From next Wednesday, special collection bins will be in every Coles supermarket in Victoria so they can be taken to remote communities in the Northern Territory and Western Australia.

Most play football as a barefoot sport. The school has a synthetic turf playing area, as well as a large open-air basketball gym. There is an oval nearby, which has in recent years begun being watered and is now green, as well as red dirt roads and play areas where the kids kick balls all day between classes. When they play structured games for teams on the main oval, the vast majority of the kids are barefoot. Yet some of the kids from the community have been capable enough players to go on to make the under-15 territory team and the shortlist for the Flying Boomerangs national indigenous under-16 team. The Age has now launched the Boots For Kids campaign, asking people to cowboy boots for toddlers donate their kids' footy boots at the end of their junior season by dropping them into boxes in Coles supermarkets, from where Linfox will truck them to remote destinations across Australia to take them to kids who have none. "Walking through the community here you have one shop and one servo, so the possibility to even purchase boots if you did have the money to spend on them is just not there, especially considering the community is cut off from Darwin for six months a year. It means they can't afford or have access to boots in the area," Stewart said. "There is definitely a high level of natural talent in all sports here but especially football.

Shoes for Kids

Its neat. Shes been thinking about it for months. She kept saying, Dad, we need to do this. Before the quest for shoes began, Aimee had to find an outlet that would help locate children in need of shoes and distribute any donated shoes. She and Russ contacted Wings as Eagles Ministries, a nonprofit American Indian relief agency. Since its inception in 1994, Wings as Eagles Ministries has established relief agencies in Wyoming, Montana, and Oglala, SD.

STAGE TUBE: Kids' Night on Broadway Spotlight- KINKY BOOTS' Annaleigh Ashford

"I'm still sore as I hadn't played for over a year. "The young players made it easy for me and I actually enjoyed it. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it, but it was a reality check to see how quick it was. "Gerry Britton has a huge job in his hands as head of youth development as we are starting off miles behind everyone else. But we are heading in the right direction. "We had a 15-year-old who started the game and we had another couple on the bench. "Hopefully we will get the benefit of that in future years." After his brief return to action in midweek, Archibald will focus his attentions on first-team matters once again tomorrow when his side face high-flying Motherwell. The Jags have not played since their 1-1 draw at home to Dundee United a fortnight ago and head into the Fir Park clash searching for a much-needed win to kickstart their survival bid. Thistle remain embroiled in a four-way scrap to beat the drop and Archibald says they have made the most of their mini-break.

Boots For Fijian Child Footballers

Picture: Update: 10:15AM A Taranaki real estate company and football club have teamed up to kick-off a drive to collect old boots. New Plymouth's FC Western and TSB Realty have got the ball rolling collecting donations of old and unused boots which will be given to players in Fiji to help develop the game over there. FC Western member Greg Hull said he first got the idea when he visited the country four years ago. "I saw a number of kids kicking a ball around and nobody had any gear," Mr Hull said. "The opportunity has arisen again and we just thought that it was a good idea if anybody has got any lying around to donate them." Mr Hull said any boots could be dropped into the TSB Realty offices, on Devon St East, before October 7, and he would take them to the islands when he visited next month. "I'll just go and see some of the schools in the villages." Faiyaz Ali, who plays for the club's first Fijian team, said football was a popular sport and he believed the boots would help nurture the game. "It was pretty difficult to afford boots when I was growing up and playing," Mr Ali, who has lived in New Zealand for nine years, said. "It would be doing a good thing for kids who can't afford boots." Mr Ali said the club's Fijian team, which played in the second division, had improved during the season. "We got better but we still finished near the bottom." Conor Ebert, 9, son of club life member Steve Ebert liked the idea.

UK has highest child death rate in Western Europe

The authors say that the overwhelming majority of children who die before reaching their fifth birthday do so in the third world and developing countries. Almost half of the deaths occur in just five countries. These are: India Democratic Republic of the Congo Pakistan China The distribution of deaths varies across global regions, with Africa (4.2 million deaths) and southeast Asia (2.39 million) the worst hit. The authors write, The concentration of all-cause child deaths and deaths due to some specific causes, such as diarrhoea, pneumonia, malaria, and AIDS, in a small set of countries is striking. In contrast, they note that only a very small proportion (1%) of the total number of deaths occur in wealthy countries. UK: Worst record in Western Europe However, they single out the UK for having the worst record on under five deaths of any country in Western Europe. The authors say this high number cannot be explained by population size alone. For instance, in 2008, there were 4,324 deaths of children under the age of five in the UK, which has a population of around 61 million. This, they say, is way ahead of France (3,090 deaths) and Germany (2,943), both of which countries have a larger population.

Sky-high booties
