The Way We Were Wednesday - Way Back Edition
A high school classmate just posted a picture of her granddaughter watching "kids shows" on an I-Pad in the back seat of a car. My first thought was, I sure am glad I grew up before that. I grew up watching the countryside stream by, undoubtedly bored out of my mind at times, but I saw what was happening around me. I learned to enjoy the journey.
I like my phone, I spent more time checking email than I should. I like my I-pad, and my Kindle, I hope I am not missing the world around me staring at my little world. I grew up unplugged, I like being connected, but all good things in moderation.
Should children and babies be entertained with phones and tablet computers?
