Just take a glance at most youngsters in trains and buses.  They would have their ears fitted with the wires that lead to their smart phones and be in their own world.  They would tend to be totally unconcerned with whatever goes on around them. 

This happens in families too.  The parents make fun of the youngsters that they have hearing aids that keep them busy!!

However, the very assertive young crowd would brook no interference and would rather go their own ways, at any point in time.  Laptops and tablets simply take over when they reach home and chatting on what's up is becoming a huge hindrance in every family.

Are we losing out on social relationships and even family ties only because of this obsession with advanced IT technology?  What is the way out, and what should be the role of parents in this regard?
