Social Skills of Our Future

It will be interesting to see what will happen to society over the next years. Children today are permanently hooked to their devices.

Children aren't learning any interpersonal skills. I see children being told, "You can have more time on your game if you will say some words to grandpa!" I live in a senior citizen complex and am appalled at family visitors who come to see their "loved one" only to sit around the dining room table completely immersed in their personal phones. The loved one is basically alone.

I don't see any of the employees on their cell phones during work hours. I'm sure they are required not to do so. But who will be in the workforce in years to come, if employees are required to stay off their phones while at work?
