NICK CANNON WANTS HIS TECHNOLOGY-DRIVEN CHILDREN TO BE CHARITABLE
Monroe and Moroccan are techno-savvy toddlers who love to play with iPads and laptops. Proud father Nick Cannon recently told PEOPLE magazine that the twins always reach for his gadgets and even broke the button on his laptop.
“My son was playing with it and he broke it,” said the actor. “My kids are already attracted to technology. They want to touch it; they’re always reaching for it. They love my iPad. That’s their generation; they love computers. So it’ll be important as they grow older to know what they’re doing online, to keep them safe.”
Nick has, on several occasions, advocated for children’s safety on the web. He recently visited Capital Hill to speak on behalf of a Bill that would prohibit websites from storing personal information about children without parental consent.
The actor is also big on charity, wanting his kids to appreciate the opportunities they’ve been given. “I want my kids to understand that every child isn’t as fortunate as they are. I want [them] to grow up helping others. I was raised by my grandmother. We were low-income, but she was always taking in foster kids. She would help anyone, and it was a good lesson for me growing up.”
Monroe and Moroccan are Nick and wife Mariah Carey’s only children together.
