That's sad that the greatest thing you learned in college was how to use Google.

@icareaboutus I am a 22 year college grad and I have been attached to the newest technology my entire life. You should be raising your children to use the newest technologies properly to do problem solving. Einstein once said... "I do not carry such information in my mind since it is readily available in books. ...The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think." In fact all computer programming is, is problem solving. Greatest thing I learned in college was how to properly use Google to find any information I could ever need. As for communication skills, get them use to talking to strangers. I was stunned to see so many socially awkward people in college, especially because it’s one of the most important attributes for finding a job.

As a 30 year old mother of an infant and toddler, technology like this causes me to fear for their future. Should I even bother to raise them to be creative problem solvers with strong communication skills? It's not like they're going to need any of that if all they have to do to sort things out in life is ask their glasses. Where do we draw the line? I could go on, but I simply do not want to live in a world full of social misfits who cannot communicate interpersonally face to face nor navigate their way through life without a computer attached to their face.Fun? Absolutely. Good for us? I am not so sure.
