“Dad, can I go on your computer?”
“That’s enough time on Facebook, Emily, let’s get going on that homework”
“Charlotte, turn off the Wii it’s time for dinner”
“Mom, where’s the phone charger”?
All of these snippets of conversation can be heard in the Laurance household on a regular basis. Technology. Love it or hate it, computers and phones and other digital media are here to stay and they are a huge part of our children’s lives. As parents it is important that we educate ourselves first about some of the potential issues and then speak with our children in an understanding way about our concerns.
