Technology: Helping or harming childhood?

(Continued)

Let’s not allow American families to become like the family I witnessed in Kauai. Enjoy the special moments of life that cannot be provided by a hand-held device.

Let’s prove to the world that we will advance as a society by using technology wisely rather than being consumed by it.
