Here's the excerpt that made Kerri Miller say, "We have to talk about this!":
"Finally, one student—a delightful young woman whom I know to be smart and levelheaded—confesses that she talks to her mother on the cellphone at least five, maybe six, even seven times a day: We're like best friends, so I call her whenever I get out of class. She wants to know about my professors, what was the exam, so I tell her what's going on and give her, you know, updates. Sometimes my grandmother's there, and I talk to her too."
I am wondering if this is linked to the rise of the smart phone; which indeed has exploded since 2009.
Do you know a young adult who is in constant contact with their parents? Do you have that kind of relationship with your kid or your parents?
@Heather Terry Castle said "that's what I am talking about!" when I read your story on the air."
@Dr. Sonja Gidlow Do you have a link to an excerpt? What did you find?
