I read a post on another blog that I felt was so good and so timely in its message that I decided to link to it from here. Author Rachel Macy Stafford writes in a post entitled, “How To Miss A Childhood“, of her realization of how much time is stolen from our children by handheld devices like iphones and ipads that are meant to electronically connect people but actually have the opposite effect. And what is worse, our children know we prioritize these devices over them again and again. Just read that last link for some heart-rending comments from children.
My husband has a saying that originated very early in our marriage, “It is better to build children than repair adults.”
