There is something about our generation that distracts us from the world around us. We seek comfort in likes and comments. We become like junkies looking for that approval and getting that High of acknowledgement. This generation is becoming lost with our high tech equipment engulfing our lives that become a god (idol) to us. Great artwork and to the point of how our culture lives by.

    While out to dinner recently, a young couple with a toddler next to our table had finished their dinner. Instead of going on their merry way, Mom is engrossed on her iPhone. The little boy decides he needs to run around the restaurant with Dad at his heels. After playing chase around the table a few times, Mom looks up and picks herself off her chair to leave with her husband and son. Second story, we took friends from out of town to dinner and their two grown adult children never looked up once from their iPhones during dinner! Technology is contributing to a generation that will have poor verbal skills as well as bad manners. What do you think?

      Yes I do believe that social, verbal, and table manners are being affected with people messing with their electronics at a dinner table. Its sad because it has happened in my family and I have to take electronics away so that they pay attention. There are no electronics allowed at the table. It is very sad and frustrating and further proof how we are moving away from human interaction.

        So true. As parents and school administrators, the only way to teach discipline and self control is to ‘lay down the law’ and set rules for everyone, youth and adults included. Confiscating iPhones is a stiff punishment for youth, esp.
