In the 2nd installment of the 3 part series, I met up with Anna Post to discuss appropriate etiquette when dining out with our children. Specifically in regard to the use of tech devices at restaurants. While proper usage can and should be appropriate, when does it become a problem? And when our kids are utilizing these devices, are they involved at all in the gathering or have they checked out entirely in a digital coma?
We also discussed how we may teach our kids from these devices and other forms of social media. Modeling good behavior in the digital world is just as important as within our analog reality. And don’t toss your stationery just yet, it’s still the most acceptable means for certain forms of interaction.
