“…the flood of food images on the internet do very little to teach your children how to interact on a social level. Mealtimes are communal invitations to practice social skills, and young children especially need to learn how to socialize rather than social network. The way that children relate to others is largely dictated by their regular social interactions with parents and family, who are the biggest influence when it comes to learning the so-called ins and outs of communication. Whenever possible, you should toss that smartphone in a drawer and eat dinner without the constant threat of a text.”
