My sister’s kids are addicted to their devices. Every time I go to her house, her kids are either playing a game or watching something on their ipod or ipad. They’re 8, 4 and 3 and I think they’ve become very rude and are being taught really bad habits. When they are on their devices, they won’t even respond when we try to talk to them and my sister doesn’t seem to see a problem with it. I’ve tried to hint that I think they use them too much but nothing has changed. I want to avoid conflict about it, but I was thinking of writing my sister a letter about my concerns. I’m wondering if any Beat listeners have dealt with this issue and what they’ve done. – Sick of Devices
