Purpose of Childhood

As agents of change I'm hopeful my new blog post will inspire you to think deeply about the relationship between technology, design, mental health and its affects on children and adults alike. It goes without saying that your thoughts and comments are most welcome!

"We see it everyday, a child with a phone in their face: on the bus, in the street, at a cafe. It's become so normal, such a daily occurrence, that I'd suggest perhaps we don't really see it any more. To me it's totally conceivable that we miss the signs completely as we too have our faces in our phones: it's now the norm, not the exception."

I’m looking for a better visual mental model that shows relative engagement for distinct members of a group. Anybody have a ready made visual or a reference for me? Think - people on team, volunteers on a board, parishioners in the pews, family members on vacation, tribal members, voters in a democracy, etc. There must be something better than toes in the water.
