Kids, parents alike worried about privacy with internet-connected toys

Young birds less honest when competing against siblings
Chicks that are competing with siblings or whose parents are likely to die or switch partners tend to be less honest when begging for food, research into sibling rivalry in birds by Oxford University scientists has found. That's because these events introduce conflict into the family group. Analysis of more than 100 studies across 60 species of bird also found that chicks are more likely to exaggerate their need for food if their parents are likely to breed again in the future - backing up existing evolutionary theory about natural selection.

Preschoolers form body images - but parents are unaware, study says
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Preschoolers may express awareness about body-image issues – but their parents may miss opportunities to promote positive body-image formation in their children because parents believe them to be too young to have these concerns, new research suggests. University of Illinois eating disorders and body-image expert Janet Liechty , who led the study, said young children are forming their body images – positive or negative – far earlier than many parents expect and largely outside of parental awareness.
