53 hours a week!

That is how much time today’s youth spends playing with technology such as video games, tv, computers, cameras, movies, phones etc. That means that American children between the ages of 8 and 18 years old spend as much time communicating with their technology that adults spend at work!  (This is up 79 minutes a week from a decade ago.)

It makes me wonder how this will impact their forms of communication as they mature – touch, spelling, speaking, even body language.
