This week, Chicago Parent is talking technology, so the guys
at White Dad Problems discuss the media devices that have replaced
them as caregivers and role models. Science!
WDP15: Better Living with Technology by ChicagoParent
Technology is everywhere, and the Rise of the Robots is really
just a few beep boops away. This week, Todd, Matt, and D.M.
(Chicago's Greatest and Wisest and Handsomest Dads Ever ©)
tell us all about the media that keeps their kids stimulated or
anesthetized, depending on the need.
Matt's baby daughter is swiping murals, hoping they are touch
screens. D.M. is trying to keep his twins away from media a little
longer, but forsees a day when he'll give up on technological
advancement like his 8-track loving grandparents. Todd's kids grew
up in the era of a constant influx of Baby Einstein, and while they
seem to not be sociopaths, he fears he may have dashed their hopes
of leading a Mars mission, or inventing a cure for stage
Meanwhile, Baby Viva uses Siri, and Todd can't even have a bio
break without his phone. D.M. flashes us forward to the next wave
of technology, where dreams become real and sandwiches appear out
of nowhere. Hooray for the future!
