A sad parent reported to me about families at the park and the parents are buried in their smart phones roaming Wi Fi, texting or whatever. They were ignoring their children and not playing with them. This mother told me that all the kids wanted to be with here because she actually paid attention to them and played with them.
Now contrast that with a wise, strict Iowa family on my shuttle that disconnect the WiFi server at their house until the kids have finished their homework.
Technology makes a great tool, but a poor end in itself.
