Reader’s comment: Parents, do your job


n response to Julie Lynn: Unfriend the cyber Pied Piper, kids, and DO something with your lives, Mina Christina Staples wrote:

When adults stop buying 12-year-olds (or younger) the latest iPhone, iPad, laptop, etc, we might see a difference. It’s no wonder we’ve gotten a generation of ‘finger fighters’ vying for bragging rights of their ‘unreal’ life while sitting on the couch eating a bag of corn chips and 75 oz. soda pop. Yet we wonder why are kids are more depressed and disconnected to themselves and the real world and people in it. And yes, schools have done our children a disservice by peddling so much school work done on computers. But ultimately, parents are disciplinarians and role models. It’s about time they start doing their job again – watching their child(ren) and setting appropriate limits. Like everything in life, moderation is key.
