100 hours, really?

A recent statistic stated that moms spend more than 100 hours online each month.  Although at first glance “100 hours” seemed high, perhaps it’s not so far out.

I mean, some social historians say a cell phone is a mom’s third arm.

Others have commented that today’s moms will be known as the “head down” generation, because they always are focused on that cell.

If that “100 hour” figure is even close to the reality, is tech impacting the mother-child relationship in ways we haven’t even considered, like continuous partial attention or setting priorities?
