Blackberries are apparently causing problems in families. Mom and Dad just can’t leave it alone.
From the Wall Street Journal:
The refusal of parents to follow a few simple rules is pushing some children to the brink. They are fearful that parents will be distracted by emails while driving, concerned about Mom and Dad’s shortening attention spans and exasperated by their parents’ obsession with their gadgets.
I am blogging about this for three reasons. One, companies are not truly “Family friendly” if their employees are expected to be reachable all of the time. So, stop saying that you are.
Two, it really is rude to be using your Blackberry during other events. Your children’s year end talent show is boring. Even your kid is not as talented as you like to think he is. And very few second grade choruses can sing harmony. Still, it is rude, rude, rude to be sending e-mails during the performance.
And three, to make Oliver glad that he read my blog today. Remember to limit blackberry time after Clara arrives.
