Cell Phones

The invention of the cell phone has changed the way we communicate—most would say for the better! And yet, there comes a time when it’s appropriate to power down that phone—like when you’re at the dinner table, for example. Why? One of the biggest advantages of sitting down to eat together as a family is the chance to connect with each other and share what’s going on in each other’s lives, face to face, and in person. (You know, like families did before there were cell phones!) Don’t worry, you can always catch up with the missed text messages and voice mails after dinner.
