As the studies about the negative effects of technology on children begin to roll in, it’s hard not to allow a bit of “I told you so” to creep into my attitude. You see, my wife and I are incredibly strict where technology is concerned. Regardless of how out of touch with most of society we are, science backs up our draconian rules. One day, our kids are going to rule the world because everyone else’s kids will have had their brain rotted out through the use of technology.
I’m half-kidding, of course. At least, I think that I’m half-kidding, at least (I used “at least” twice on purpose). Whether or not my smugness is defensible has no bearing on the fact that the studies overwhelmingly reveal that technology use has negative impact on children (and adults).
