  1. Although my daughter is only 16 months old, I do worry about how technology will effect her socially when she is older. We were blessed (or maybe cursed) with a child who has little interest in the tv and WANTS to be outside regardless of the weather. This really challenges us to come up with new things to do to encourage this desire and behavior. We do lead by example and do not have smartphones and limit our online activity. But I know that as she grows older she may want the things that other children have, including technology. I think having designated time for internet/social media/technology is a great way to help take the focus OFF of that and to introduce new ideas and potentially new interests.
