Technology has always burned moms. We shouldn’t let our kids sit in front of the TV, experts say. But when every other kid in the neighborhood can recite lines from the newest show, ours are going to want in. If it’s not TV, it’s tablets or smart phones or
gaming systems. When we were growing up, we were lucky if we had a few satellite TV channels or a flip phone, but our kids have piles of technology at their fingertips. It’s no surprise that even toddlers are learning about Twitter, and tweens are posted all over Instagram.
It’s true that technology is always changing, and every generation has dealt with the emerging trends, but ours is inundated. Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, plus online gaming and smartphone apps let our kids go places we’ve never even heard of- and we’re supposed to be the rising tech generation.
