Guest Host: Matthew Felling

They’re the adolescent distractions of the digital era — the video games, cell phones and websites that keep your child glued to a screen.

Tech Tuesday explores the idea of children as savvy consumers, and whether there’s anything parents can do to protect their kids from marketing messages.
