What Our Kids Won’t Know

Kelly Maher and Lyndsey Fifield consider all the things they’ll have to tell their kids about one day—dial-up internet, encyclopedias, the satisfaction of a well-timed trip to the bathroom during a commercial break, memorizing phone numbers? Tuck in for a great discussion of how to raise resilient, not-tech-reliant kids in a digital world.

    Lyndsey: “I took this video of the [pneumatic] tube at the bank drive thru and uploaded it to Instagram!”

    Also Lynsey: “I don’t want to be known as the person who’s on her phone all the time.”

    You don’t say.

    Teasing aside I do think it’s important to not let kids be on screens the entirety of their lives, and I applaud Kelly’s decision to forego the back of the seat DVD players.

    I love Kelly’s attitude about kids and screens. I don’t have kids yet, but if/when I do, that is how I want to be. No screens in the car. Not giving my 10 year old a smart phone. It’s definitely going against the grain, but I think it would be better in the long run. Especially since there is so much you can’t control that kids can see just by being on instagram or youtube.
