Body-image issues, cyber bullying, and depression related to social media use in kids and teens is starting to be discussed more and more. But I had never seen someone relate technology use to an intolerance for delayed gratification. That's a very important point that I think has an even more wide-reaching impact, especially as these kids become adults, enter the workforce and government, and become parents themselves. We need to find a balance with technology as parents, and instill it in our kids as well.

I write about parenting, personal growth, and spirituality. And occasionally video games. Proud supporter of the Oxford comma.
