Smartphones are negatively affecting interactions between parents and kids.

Oct 19 2016

Smartphones are negatively affecting interactions between parents and kids. A recent study by child-behavior specialists at University of Michigan and Boston Medical Center, found that phones and tablets are an “unpredictable” distraction for parents, and requires more “emotional investment” than other interferences. Parents in the study often complained that digital devices can trigger “information overload, emotional stress, and…disruption in their families’ routines,” affecting their caregiving abilities. Past studies have stressed the importance of “face-to-face interaction” with children to build verbal skills and mental abilities. (Quartz)
