"My 11-yr-old daughter says that whenever she hangs out with her friends, they mostly want to play with technology, mostly phones but also iPads, computers, gaming systems etc. She says that she tries to ask them to spend some time off technology but they basically say no (with some exceptions, like going in the pool).
It’s hard as a parent to tell someone else’s kid to get off technology, because then kids won’t want to come over to your house!
I’m curious how others handle this. Thanks!"
