Unfortunately, this trust is sometimes misplaced, and the consequences can be tragic. Abuse and neglect can be particularly worrisome because if often goes unreported.

New Technologies Provide Convenience Along With Distractions and Risk

2010-08-12
In the digital era, multitasking has become a way of life. While reading the news, we chat with colleagues through instant message. While having coffee with friends, we check text messages. We divide our attention between multiple activities, trusting that each activity only demands a fraction of our available capacity. Most of the time, this is not a serious problem. We have adapted to a way of life that anticipates and accepts constant interruptions. Unfortunately though, some activities are not well-suited to this approach.
