Bill Gates and Steve Jobs Raised their Kids Tech Free
I think it's important in today's world for kids to become familiar with technology and know how to use it, but not have their entire world be on-screen.
I have an iMac and a MacBook and an ipad and an iphone and I know that seems like a lot, but I use them to do my work and keep in communication with my readers and other businesses. But they are not my whole life. I also have direct conversations with people face-to-face, spend time in nature, and have a reality of the real world that is not filtered through someone else's online presentation. I used to have a friend who would say she wanted me to come visit so we could eat chocolate cake together, and you can't eat chocolate cake via email.
I remember life before technology and I wonder if today's generation even know what that's like.
We are human beings whose lives are supported by our relationships with other humans and the natural environment. Technology is second in importance to the fundamentals of life in my world,
