Parents need to watch this. Gaming addiction and social networking addiction are serious problems. And it's rewiring the brain. Think of little ones using these things from the cradle. How many people are living virtual lives instead of living in the real world. The discussion of "second life" in this video is scary. It's making the matrix look real!
Maybe giving up unnecessary computer/smartphone/ipod use for Lent would be a good idea.
