Family Life Reinvented By The Digital Age

With the average family home boasting 2.6 computers and or game consoles, the change in the family dynamic is profound. Kids do their homework online, they play on their computers (instead of outside) and families keep in touch with distant relatives via email, rather than by visiting or picking up the phone.

Of course it's not necessarily all bad... people who use email subsequently keep in contact much more frequently and parents notice a huge improvement in their kids homework as a result of using the Internet as a research tool.

The most noticable downside involves communication within the home and the negative impact on health, when the number of computers in most homes far exceeds the number of bicycles.
