echnology: Are We Present--but Distracted Parents?

USA Today Cover Story

Parents, particularly those of you who work at home from time to time or do so consistently, take time to read this article from USA Today. It was their lead story in today's issue. The main premise is that parents are letting their spouses and children down by how distracted we are when we work at home. Technology has made it possible to spend more time in the home, yet it's made it possible to do so without really being present. This made me want to just shut my phone and computer off when I'm at home sometimes. I want my wife and son to know that I treasure time with them and that they are priorities above texts, emails, blogs, and books.
