Technoference

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.
