In Praise of Recess
Jeff and I both need to practice a little more before we can preach though. ;) I remember my teenage sister sitting across the table at dinner with her headphones in and thinking to myself, "I won't allow *my* kids to do that." But how tempting is it to give in when you know that a handheld game at the restaurant means ten minutes of grown-up conversation and no tantrums? Or that handing over your iPhone while you wait for the doctor means the chatter will cease.
So I guess now you can add this to the posts that say technology is a blessing and a curse, and as with all things, needs moderation. I'd rather just sing a song of praise for recess.
