The Distraction Free Daughter

Oct 02, 2019

Cross Summary from Discover Abre.

She is 14, my daughter, talkative and with a mind that leaps from idea, to memory, to whatifs in the span of a microsecond. This is the age where kids – especially girls – enter and embrace the nebulous social rules of friendships, gossip, and hyperbole. Everyday runs like a CW soap opera.

Screens attract her. Not the passive screens. She doesn’t have much patience for long narratives or epic movies. She loves the social apps where she can leap into the river of conversation with other teenage girls. Academically, she loves the sites that gamify her learning or provide instant feedback (she can pass hours on the excellent website Quill.org).

She is bright and resourceful. And like many a teenager, she finds loopholes all the time.
