Dinner Is A Technology Free Zone

My 14 year old daughter made a declaration the other day...

"Dinner needs to be a technology free zone"

And she's got me thinking. It's about the polarities.

Wanting to speed up and slow down at the same time.
The Mercedes Benz in the Walmart parking lot.
Always needing to be connected and therefore needing to shut off completely for a while.

I wonder if her generation will be the one's to say enough. The always on, all grow'd up with the network generation.

Maybe they will have a reaction that no one expects.

A let's take a break.
Turn off the stream.
A stop with social media conversation and just have a real one for a change.

If not always and often, at least maybe, at dinner.
