So I was at the restaurant last night, and noticed that at every single table with parents that had kids that looked like they were in college/high school/ or even preteen, all of the kids were on their smart phones for almost the entire dinner. The one table looked like there were 2 or 3 families together and every single teen at the table was on their smart phone, which was 8 of them. Quite pathetic. Why do parents let their kids do whatever they want? Technology does not belong at the dinner table. No TV, no computers, no smart phones. How pathetic of a society have we become where people can no longer eat together for just 1 or 2 hours and talk face to face? A lot can be learned about a group of people not only through the food they eat, but also how they eat together.
