Why can’t I use my Phone During Dinner With my Kids?

Researchers observed parents who were absorbed in their cellphones while dining with their children at a fast food restaurant. They noted that the more absorbed the parent seemed to be in the cellphone, the more their children misbehaved. They also noted that when children were misbehaving, parents tended to respond much more harshly when they were absorbed in their phones. That’s a great reason to cut back on technology when the kids are around!
