I dunno. I still talk to my kids. DD2 and I will play pass and play scrabble. Or we watch silly videos or music videos together and laugh over them. I send my daughter interesting articles I read and the like over email and she will respond. I think it's all just different kinds of communication. We do eat dinner together every night, though, and there are no phones, etc at the table. I think we have plenty of time to chat and interact AND we occasionally incorporate media into those interactions.
On gadget that has united us is the fitbit type activity trackers. It's fun to be in a friendly competition with who has the most steps. We can also challenge each other to different things. It's all friendly competition and gets us moving.
Married, working mom to son (almost 15), DD1 (almost 13) and DD2 (11). Oh, and badnewf, a nonobadbordercollie and 3 black cats.
