Sometimes I look at my Little Man and wish I could just bottle him up and keep him at this age.
Unfortunately, this moment of playful imagination gets interrupted when he finds my phone.
Lately, I have been reflecting on this generation my son is now a part of. Where so much information and innovation is just a swipe or click of a button. My son will never know of a world without flat-screens, ipads, and iphones. He will never know of a life without the term "social media" or " ipad app."
Isn't that just amazing?
What type of adults will come from this generation? Our children are essentially the guinea pigs for whether or not there are lifelong effects- should I be worried?
I understand all the wonderful things technology brings...but can there be a negative affect that we won't realize until it's too late?
Do you know what I worry about the most...
That this generation will have the inability to connect with people face to face. That they will have such a habit of being stimulated by an external device that they may loose their imaginations, their creativity, their ability to sit still and be fully present.
What to do...what to do.
I am still continuing with this monthly Challenge to Disconnect because I still have it on the brain... More about this subject...
