Life is so complicated today...has it always been that way or is this a new phenomenon? Did our great grandparents experience the stress we live with on a daily basis? Could it be a result of our technological age and the ability to be connected 24/7 with family and job? Maybe it is more a result of the fact that we don't bond like families of past generations....when was the last time the whole family sat down for a meal without technology having a place at the table. Text, Tweets, and Facebook post have replaced the art of conversation, and the bond resulting from the interaction during a conversation. Can popular text and chat acronyms or even a simple exclamation point replace true raw emotions? Does all this contribute to the breakdown of the American family?
