lol I was one of those who ran away from the mere suggestion! But I agree with you, Technology has improved our life, but also because of the convenience, we get easily distracted from what we were doing, and in turn we've wasted our time on something far less important.

Back to your previous post, we are far worse than our children, and the only reason we set a limit to their Technology use is not because we are being traditional. We are considering their eye and posture development (we are goners, nothing can help!) as well as face to face social skills. It's bad enough that I can only chat freely online behind a computer, while staring blankly at people I meet, wondering what to say! I hope that my children can have the confidence both face to face and behind the screen :)

Thanks all for comments, I love how this has ignited such strong views on both sides. Most importantly, @AngelaC here is the rest of that cake, it was for my son's 8th birthday http://joannemallon.typepad.com/joanne_the_coach/2011/06/the-amazing-six-layered-cake.html

@Jennifer I am off to read your post now
