With our lives inescapably intertwined with technology, with children and adults spending ever more time in front of screens, it’s critical that we look at how being constantly plugged-in impacts our families and our relationships.
The Huffington Post’s Screen Sense section is devoted to promoting mindfulness when it comes to how and when we use our devices. It is a place where parents can come to read the latest studies, reports and journalistic explorations about how technology is impacting their children, academically, socially and emotionally; where workers can learn how the "always on" culture is influencing their productivity and well-being; and where all of us can see the effects of this latest addiction on our daily lives. It will also be a place to share triumphs and fixes. The goal is to start a global conversation about the science behind screens as well as help each other navigate the complicated and ever-changing world of technology -- to look at how it affects our children, our marriages, our friendships, our futures.
