ReConnect Family Smartphones are part of our daily life. We, as adults know how to handle them, but what about a child? Children don’t have experience with phones, and haven’t learnt how to respond to people distracted by their phone.
During dinner is the perfect moment to relax, tell stories and talk about the day. One out of five parents lets this moment be disrupted by their phone. When the interaction between parent and child is regularly disrupted by the phone, it impacts the development of the child. As a result, they may find it more difficult to trust others, enter relationships and regulate their emotions.
