How do we keep our children focused in school? We all remember what school was like back in the day, and that was before the era of smartphones, portable game consoles, and other items that can suck in our attention and keep it firmly away from the teacher, no matter how good they are. Yet kids also need phones to contact you, look up directions, and make use of other features. How do you balance those needs with the need for focus?

This scenario is of course completely fictional for most. Anyone with children who claims their Thanksgiving was in any way straightforward or dreamlike, is probably bending the truth quite significantly. Especially if they were the ones hosting the festivities.
