Today my 15-year-old made an amazing revelation: he’s realized that iPods and other mp3 players are interfering with his life and that of other kids. A group of his buddies got together for a birthday party this weekend. They are best friends from church, but spread out over a big metro area and don’t get to spend as much time together as they would like. Apparently during the course of their time together they wore iPods part of the time, and he finally thought, “Why are we doing this?” He “locked” his iPod yesterday and hasn’t used it since. He also realized last night that it interferes with his reading. Hallelujah!

I get so frustrated being in the same vehicle with a child, yelling at the top of my lungs and not being heard. Admittedly, I drive a 15-passenger van so I’m about half a mile from the kids in the back seat, but still… Pull out those headphones and join the real world with the rest of us (or at least our version of the real world)!
