You had said your kids love to watch Reality TV and watch it all the time. With you being Mormon and living in Utah, do they watch the TLC Sister Wives or are they allowed? If so does it raise questions? If this subject is to touchy and something you do not want to talk about I understand but if you have thoughts on it I would love to hear it.

My wife, however, does watch Sister Wives, and I wouldn't care if my daughters wanted to either. There's nothing particularly controversial about it--other than it being just as vacuous as those other reality shows. I'd rather they didn't watch any of them, to be honest.
But anything that "raises questions" (be it a TV show, book, conversation with a teacher) is entirely welcome as far as I'm concerned. I haven't been a practicing Mormon for around 20 years now, and my girls have only been to church a scant number of times--though we did have them baptized and I'm still not sure why.
The people in Sister Wives are not technically Mormons, as the practice of polygamy hasn't been part of the religion in over a hundred years (funny how the word of God changes when you really, really want statehood!). So now there are all sorts of splinters, sects, and offshoots of Mormonism that still believe in the practice of plural marriage.
I actually wish they could be left alone to do as they see fit. If someone wants to have multiple wives, I don't understand at all why that's a problem. Of course, none of these groups can leave well enough alone and venture into areas that I definitely do object to--taking wives that are underage chief among them (though they're just following the stellar example set by Joseph Smith). Otherwise, I think consenting adults should be left unhindered to pursue their own brand of happiness. If that means taking more than one wife, go for it, you crazy, libidinous, masochist, you.

Also I hate TLC and there stupid marathons. For example on Sunday morning I knew very little about gypsy weddings in Britain and by 9pm that night I knew way more then I thought I would ever care.

And as good as Walking Dead is, I still have a soft spot for Sam & Max, warts and all, when it comes to Telltale's best stuff for me. Of course, they would need to retool it to bother bringing it back and having it be interesting. But Walking Dead was certainly a surprise and I'd love to see if they can do a better job of integrating consequences for choices over the course of their series. Its cool to see it acknowledge your actions, but some of that stuff can be as inconsequential as some of the more mundane Mass Effect moments. The last big choice in Episode One has the potential to cause quakes, but we'll have to wait and see.

I love the "_________ noted your concern" etc pop-ups. Not that these things will mean anything per se, but it gives the illusion of impact. Even if only a half-dozen things actually matter, it makes everything matter because you as a player aren't informed as to which would and which don't; everything "does" to you. I love the time limit countdown on those things as well—it really keeps the pressure up.

Hindsight, cynicism, and realistic expectations can diminish what the game wants to accomplish is all.

I also can't find out anything about developing for iOS on a PC, so if you can't do that I call into question it being a platform you can develop for without investing money into a baby's toy.
Edit: Though, also, the tying to the system crap needs to end so bad. As mik said it's completely anti-user and anti-parent, which is really a shitty thing for Nintendo to do. Not only do you now have to worry about your child losing that expensive system when they go off to school with it, but also their entire library of games. Not to mention if the thing got broken. When my brother was terribly two years old he threw my original Game Boy in a bathtub full of water. Kids are unpredictable as hell. I eventually got a Game Boy Pocket and moved on with life, though, and kept playing all my games.

You do need a Mac to develop for iOS, 'cuz they don't make Xcode for Windows. And Mac Minis start at $599. And you need $99 to apply for the Apple Developer Program. I'm guessing developing for Vita involves outlaying a lot more cash than that.
At the moment it's free to devolop on PS Suite. But it's in Beta, and if you want a game released I am sure that would be a completely different story.
I bought a mac book air to develop iOS, and I love that thing.
No, you can only develop for iOS using XCode, the iOS libraries are not available in any other SDK. iOS uses Objective C anyway, and I am not sure that language is in use anywhere else (outside of Apple). PS Suite uses C# if you are interested.
