How technology has changed communication

You know, technology has had a profound impact on communication. I mean my children don’t even have spelling tests anymore, because they figure there’s so many spell checks now. So there’s going to be a lot of ways that us as parents have to consider to communicate with our children – texting, Facebook, emails – things like that. I think there is more communication between people, but I think it’s shorter and not as elaborate or rich. And so, there’s some positive things and negative things that go along with that. I think you could communicate with a lot of people at one time, which is helpful, but you also got to be careful, because some of those communications might not be too great.
