I've found that giving your digital camera to your three year old daughter is a good thing. 1. It doesn't cost you anything to develop the pictures and believe me, a three year old can take a lot of pictures in a short space of time. 2. It keeps a bored three years old on a rainy day occupied. 3. I find it very interesting to sort through the resulting pictures and see what things my daughter finds interesting enough to snap its picture. Besides the hundreds of pictures of myself and my wife, which tells me we must be good parents in our daughter's eyes, it seems as if she spends much of her time still looking down.
