I have had people tell me that they allow the phone to wake them up in the middle of the night while they are sleeping, in order to answer a text. I've had people tell me that their small children scream if their ipad is taken off them. I have had other people tell me that their children are pleading for their parent to look at them, instead of their phone. What do you think needs to happen here? It's common sense really, but it seems as though technology has robbed us of our common sense sometimes.
Your family and close relationships, really do need your face to face interactions, in order to feel secure, loved and connected, and, so do you. Our brains are wired to need one another's facial interactions, and face to face connections. Without this our brains, can suffer and when the brain suffers, our whole body and emotional life suffers. Time spent connecting in with one another, soothes our brains, soothes our partners, and helps to create a happier, more connected life.
