Linda M. Penn

Are you giving your kids new tablets, computers, or phones? Lucky them! Well…maybe, maybe not.


Is the device something the child needs or something wanted because it is the latest version?

Will the device enable the child to have access to accurate research for school projects?

Will the device be a means to communicate with you in case of an emergency or maybe a friendly hello call to Grandma or Grandpa?

Will the device be used to talk by text with friends or use on social outlets? Will the comments be positive or a form of bullying?

I will stop the list of questions – I am sure you get the point. Will the device be used positively or negatively?

I recently read an article about the number of kids who turn to their devices as their preferred social outlet versus actual person-to-person contact. The article also gave statistics about rising rates of depression in youth. I am not trying to make the argument that technology is the underlying reason for youth depression, but it probably shows it is time to seriously consider the value of more personal contact and less screen time.

Let’s all question ourselves: When was the last time we used the phone to actually make a real phone call to Mom, Grandma, Grandpa, or a friend instead of an impersonal comment on a social outlet?

Come on, let’s all give a special present this Christmas! OURSELVES – in the form of real conversation with family and friends!

Giving tangible things during Christmas is just a part of it. It does not symbolize the true essence of Christmas. Because for me, the true essence of Christmas is giving your whole love to others and give it to them wholeheartedly. And it is this kind of gift is unmeasurable. And that is the true essence of Christmas that any tangible things could ever give. That is why during Christmas I make sure that I show my love to my family because that is my gift for them.

I motivate my little son and daughter, ages 3 and and 5, to make it a habit to play outdoors in our home's playground. Playing outdoors definitely beats playing games using a tablet, computer, or smart phone. I want my kids to be as sociable as they possibly can while they are still young. I never want my kids to develop anti-social personalities. My son and daughter were able to make friends with our neighbors' kids after frequently playing with them in our home's playground.

Thank you for posting a blog like this. Seriously, it caught my attention. Because I really love Christmas. And for me, Christmas is the season where all the people give and get their gifts. Christmas is also the season where love is dominant to the heart of everyone because it is the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. Christmas is not all about giving or just getting. It is a balance of giving and receiving. I am hoping that I can read another article related to this topic.

This is wonderful! I love the bit about hoping. That's the thing that really got me to make my final decision to sign with my agent; she had this amazing optimism just leaking out of her pores when she called to offer representation.
