Do you check your email while eating dinner with your kids or send that last work-related text as you pick them up from soccer practice? According to a new study, they find this split-attention quite upsetting:

In her studies, Dr. Turkle said, “Over and over, kids raised the same three examples of feeling hurt and not wanting to show it when their mom or dad would be on their devices instead of paying attention to them: at meals, during pickup after either school or an extracurricular activity, and during sports events.”
