As parents, it is impossible not to notice the growing cultural obsession with the collection of our children’s data. Yet is it difficult to understand what is going on, and how technological developments and data mining practices are impacting on the life of our family. In a witty article Rikki Rogers (2014) pointed out the Good, the Bad and the Ugly in the relationship between big data and family life. In this part of the website I gathered six articles that can help you gain a broader picture of the different dimensions that define this relationship. I do hope this is helpful for you.
