I was watching a program last night that dealt with modern technology. We all know there is good and bad.
The scene was around the dinner table. Food was on the table, everyone was sitting at their place.................but no one was eating............everyone was texting. The mother politely asked everyone to put down their phone and enjoy the meal. No one complied. She then said, 'I cant blame them, I do the same thing.'
She asked again, but no one paid any attention. Then she looked at the camera and suggested that there be a basket on the counter top and that when it was meal time, everyone would be required to put their ipod, cell phone or whatever they used to text, in the basket until mealtime was over. Personally, I thought it was a great idea. What do you think about it?
We have all but lost the ability to sit at the table with our families and talk.....from our mouths.....not our cell phones. I know we live in a busy world, and the times to gather as a family are all but gone, but we can make the effort. It will be worth it.
Computers and cell phones are taking over!!!!
