THE?ADVENT of modern technology is a challenge that families face as it becomes accessible to all households.
Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, speaking at the opening of the Anglican Caribbean Provincial Congress at the Roy Marshall Teaching Complex yesterday, said there was a time when parents had the upper hand in the latest technology, but now children were now part of the target market.
“We now have a situation as a result of this dizzying revolution – still in progress – whenever we think we are current we learn to our chagrin that we are lagging far behind,” he said as he addressed the conference theme Challenges Facing Caribbean Families.
The Prime Minister said the information technology (IT) revolution had put a burden on the family because of the energy and time that were spent with it. (JS/RL)
