Note to Readers: I don’t know if technology is stressing our kids, but I do know that technology has added a new paradigm to the many facets of parenting.

I do know that keeping up with the various forms of interaction, communication, and learning has made me feel like I have one more full time parenting job. It is always challenging to be the transitional generation.
