“Just because your baby can tap a touch screen to change a picture does not mean that he should, that it is a developmentally useful or appropriate activity for him. In fact, research suggests that the process of tapping a screen or keypad and engaging with the screen activity may itself be rerouting brain development in ways that eliminate development of essential other neural connections your child needs to develop reading, writing, and higher-level thinking later.”
Catherine Steiner-Adair, The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age

“When texting begins to take the place of substantive in-person conversations for any of us, we are training the language and speech centers of our brain for a new, unnatural, and superficial model of connection. When that training starts early, as it does now for young texters, they get so used to it at such a young age that, unlike the newborn baby who innately knows something is missing and complains about it, our older tech-trained children don’t even know what they have lost.”
Catherine Steiner-Adair, The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age

“Every time our child’s texting, TV, electronic games, and social networking take the place of family, and every time our tech habits interrupt our time with them, that pattern is broken and the primacy of family takes another hit.”
Catherine Steiner-Adair EdD., The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age
