In this high-tech, gadget filled world, there’s an "app" for nearly everything, from financial tracking to entertainment to social media, and everything else you can imagine. With smart phones, iPads, laptops, and all the other latest cutting-edge technology, it may appear that we’re more connected than ever – but are we really? Listen to The Dani Johnson Show as Dani discusses the effects of an in-touch society and our out-of-touch relationships.

    Great topic! I have often thought of this! I am in my early 20’s and have pretty much grown up completely in the the technology era. I agree completely that technology is taking over our relationships. My boyfriend and I talk all day on instant messaging/text messaging, so when we talk in person.. our conversation lacks because we have already talked about everything throughout the day.. SAD! And, with my family, when we are together someone if ALWAYS on their phone, computer, iPad, etc… When we ‘spend time together’ we don’t really spend time together. We just end up sitting in the same room stuck in our own heads and focused the the electronic in front of us. I completely think that technology has conditioned our society to be underdeveloped in our communication/relationship skills. But with that said, what is even the first step of dropping technology and investing in our relationships? I mean, (yes, a TRUE 98% thought) we cannot get rid of our cell phones, computers, iPods.. can we?

    I just have my cell phone and yes, I would rather you text me than call me…I’m busy can’t chat at the moment, but I do believe we lean too much on other techno gadgets that take us away from having great fullfilling relationships.

    I grew up in Iran and we had NO TV or any other fancy entertainment. What we did have was LOTS of family gatherings. Every week either we had 30-40 people over, or we were at other family members house. I am so grateful because that’s where I learned how to communicate, respect, honor, have fun with people. That is my desire for my son.
