Technology boon or bane

Below are reactions to the question “Do instant messaging, email, cell phones, and other gadgetry bring family members closer or drive them apart?

  • “ using a lot of high-tech gear to communicate at home is a poor proxy for face-to-face communication and sees omnipresent technological ties as threatening to intimacy- B.L.

  • “ ….typing to each other instead of talking to each other can only lead to problems down the road, such as teens using email to deceive parents about their activities”- G.W.

  • “my wife and I talk more throughout the day because of instant messaging. My communication with far-flung relatives is very much enriched by it.” R.K.

  • “ I thought our marital relationship would suffer when I left my wife for a consultancy job abroad for eighteen months. Email missives made us more aware, more acceptable and more communicative.” M.C.P.

  • “ How can computerized communication, in place of face-to-face family communication and hugs, deepen dialogue?” T.H.
