The kids computer at your local school might be a simple desk that you use to store all your digital music and photos.
Or it might be something more.
The kids might be using it to help them work through homework, answer a test or learn a new language.
That’s what a group of parents are trying to figure out, and they’re asking parents to send them pictures of the desk so they can see what they’ve made.

The organization says the kids computer can have potentially deadly consequences, including damage to their brain, brain tumors and strokes.
The group is asking parents of children who are using their computers to make art, play games or write to ask them to take a picture of it and share it with their friends.
Parents are being asked to share their photos on social media using the hashtag #kidsc.
The campaign is still in its early stages, and the group says more than 500 parents have so far contributed to the effort.
