I have blogged multiple times recently about the whole texting and parenting debate that has been fueled by a recent Wall Street Journal article. I found today that Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur weighed in on the debate in her post on Catholic Mom. I found her opinion to be quite different than most that I have been exposed to lately, and found it refreshing enough to want to share. Patrice asked the question, "what does society expect of parents today?", and quite honestly it made me wonder. Surely there are times when using a cell phone around your kids in inappropriate. They do deserve your utmost attention at certain points, but 24/7? Patrice feels as if the helicopter parent is becoming more prevalent than ever in today's world and that articles bashing parents like this will only continue that trend. I felt Patrice made a very accurate point in her argument and wanted to share it.

Read her original article here: Do We Expect Too Much from Parents Today?
