Best Parenting Tweets: What Moms And Dads Said On Twitter This Week

Our children's brave new Internet-loving world has a vocabulary and technological toolkit all its own. Rather than fiddling with old-fashioned phone cords, kids use Skype and FaceTime like pros; instead of playing hopscotch like their parents, some literally run around in circles pretending to "load."
