This photo provided by Amazon shows a demonstration of the company's new parent dashboard tool, on a smartphone. Amazon is introducing new tools to help parents see what their kids are doing on the company’s Fire tablets. As a bonus, the e-commerce giant says its service will also help spark discussions about the books kids read and the videos they watch. Parents first have to sign up with Amazon’s FreeTime service, a set of tools for pre-approving how much time kids spend on a tablet and what they do with it. The FreeTime service is free, as is the new dashboard tool. Then they’ll be able to view each child’s activities through Amazon’s website. (Amazon via AP)
