You’re putting the turkey in the oven or running out the door to get to Thanksgiving dinner and the phone rings. Should you answer? Consider unplugging for the holidays so that you can focus on and enjoy close friends and family.
Of course, some calls and emails are from well wishers, that’s what caller ID is for. In addition, you can send you own good wishes to those near and dear and alert them to times you’ll be available and those times when you won’t. In addtion. Take a day or two off from email, social networking, and online gaming.
How rude is it to have a loved one sit in a group and ignore others while almost hyponized by technology? Perhaps make a suggestion that during dinner, there is an “Electronic Lockdown” so that family/guests are not distracted and can focus on one another. No interruptions while sharing the pleasures of the present company. This includes the ever-texting teens.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
