We live in a very peculiar time. LED lit screens have replaced faces. Text / fonts have replaced audible words and we have replaced eye contact for “eyes down” at our technology devices. Many of us born before 1994 have seen this transformation first hand. We’ve also been experiencing an epidemic of over-scheduled families leaving little room for time to “just talk”. The essential art of live conversation has been disintegrating into awkward communication enhanced by strange body language. So, how do we foster the face-to-face dialogue in a society that values emoji’s over physical communication and activities over family time?
We have found, fostered and believe in a program developed to do just that!
