“Hi Jules: Is parenting ‘easier’ in today's age of devices? At what point does the exposure become detrimental? My cousin has two boys (8 and 11) who are dependent on some kind of screen in front of them almost at all times. At the dinner table, at family gatherings, etc.
It's sad to watch, but the only thing I can do is live and learn from it when I become a parent – since keeping screens 100% away from kids is impossible, right?”
I'm not a parent, but I don't think that parenting is easier in today's age of devices. Stats like the rise of social media, coinciding with the rise in teen mental health issues, just show that parents face a new array of issues today.
