Now, what is the article all about? If we have to summarize it in the shortest possible way, the article revolves around the modern-day trend of capturing our children in photographs and videos. Modern technology allows us to do this very easily.
The author points out how almost a film can be made out of this material and how every aspect of a child’s life is captured. The author goes on to explain that only the positive side is capture and not the negative side of the child growing up; this is in part caused by the parent’s desire to come off in the best light.
This is an interesting piece that makes you pause for a second and think: how technology is actually impacting our everyday lives.
