#BabyLove: My Social Life. By Corine Dehghanpisheh
This book is a perfect reflection of the times we are living in with their all embracing focus on technology. What does a baby care about technology? His or her first home was one of darkness, and now they are exposed to all the bright, unexpected lights of phones, tablets, or computer screens. The lights may draw them at first, but as this great statement of a book notes, a baby mainly wants natural attention and affection from their parents. Does a baby, who cannot read yet, care anything about how many likes his or her photo received on Instagram? Of course not! They just want your undivided love! While technology is fun and helpful and surely has its place, the fine message contained here can help parents and children to be balanced in their use of it.
