Sad Message a Result From Texting?


Photo of "I Miss You Dad" sprayed on a city wall by Paula Hess.Can you decipher the meaning and motivation behind the message in the photo?

Was the dad deployed to Afghanistan?
No reason?
Car accident … maybe the dad was distracted by text messages?

Speaking of text messages and electronic devices...

"Media, Technology, and Early Childhood Development: What Parents Need to Know," a workshop, led by Holly Pedersen, Ph.D., will be held at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, April 30 at the Brisbane Library (250 Visitacion Avenue, Brisbane).

This event is just one of many events the Brisbane Library and other San Mateo County Libraries have scheduled to celebrate Ditch Your Device Week (Monday, April 29 to Sunday, May 5), all designed to coax you to reduce your electronic device screen time.

Is Brisbane too far?

The workshop will also be held at Pacifica Sanchez Library (1111 Terra Nova Boulevard, Pacifica) on Monday, April 29 at 7:00 pm and Atherton Library (2 Dinkelspiel Station Lane, Atherton) on Thursday, May 2 at 4:00 pm—and other branches will be holding additional exciting programs during Ditch Your Device Week to help (at least temporarily) break the screen habit.
