You might not have known what to call it, but we see technoference countless times each day.
Technoference is when parents access screens while interacting with their children.
“Acting out” – which doesn’t need a definition – is how a child responds to even limited technoference.
Researchers are just now starting to look at the long-term impact on children who experience “divided attention.” Technoference is so prevalent, it’s bound to have an effect on kids. I wonder, too, how it impacts effective parenting.
