On page 33, Tough refers to "Blair and Evan's research, suggesting that regular good parenting-being helpful and attentive during a game of Jenga-can make a profound difference for a child's future prospects."
This made me wonder how our 24/7 connection to technology, social media, emails and the Internet will affect our ability to truly be in the moment with our children as parents.
As educators, I wonder, how addressing so many needs and demands at once in a classroom, will impact our ability to be in the moment with our students, which proves to make the difference. How do we continue to balance connectivity, ever increasing demands and yet be in the moment with face to face interactions and connections with our students?
