Did you know that 75% of the parents who have younger children (even teenagers) can't sit 5 minutes without getting on a electronic device (this includes a cell phone). According to the news there was a study that shows that when a parent takes their child out to eat that the parent (and teenagers) are on their electronic devices and the younger child will start to misbehave because the parent is not paying attention to them. The study said you can look at a table with teenagers and see everyone texting or playing a game (on social site) and no conversation takes place at the table.
What haapen to the days that a family sits at the table and talk about their day and realy talk? Is this the thing of the past?
I never thought how many times I have walked in any store and seen individual on their cell phone. I do know that 3 out of 5 people that are on the roads driving are on their cell. I dont go into fast food places but we have a McDonalds in the Wal Mart and you can walk by and most are talking or texting.
Are you one of the 75% that can't step away from your electronic device for an hour or while out eating with the kids (or anyone)?
