I wish there was a way for this article to appear on every person's Facebook page or the log in page for all social media. Video games can be lumped in with spending too much time "escaping " from reality too. I think a brief article about creative ways parents can spend time with their families in small ways could be a helpful piece. Dividing time between establishing relationships with children takes enough work and now social media definitely takes a front seat to spending quality time with kids.

Great article!

I continually marvel at the irony of a generation of people who cannot live without their smartphone or their "social media" calling themselves "connected". To what? To whom? We've all seen people in company ignoring that company for their phone. Our young workers spent more time attending to their phones--which beep every other minute--than to their work. People give short shrift to their driving because they are absorbed in their phones. I call this DISconnected. It is certainly diseased. If everybody logged off "social media" forever and smashed their smartphones into rubble, we'd make a major leap back toward sanity. Smart phones=dumb people.
