It’s summertime. . . and the livin’ is easy. . . or at least a little more focused on our smartphone screens. The kids are out of school. We ourselves might be heading away from our daily routines and out on a vacation. For the most part, we are engaged in the fewer of the “distractions” that keep us away from the “distractions” we call our smart-phones!
Once again, we need to be reminded of the words of Marshall McLuhan who several decades ago so wisely said, “We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then our tools shape us”
The folks at Rawhide.org recently posted this helpful infographic on teens and screen time. Look at it. Ponder it. Pass it on to parents. Perhaps it will motivate you to do a little shaping of your own with the children and teens you know and love!
