Fine-spun tales of empathy - Books - www.theage.com.au

Anne Fine, interviewed while on a recent visit to Sydney, in fine dyspeptic mood...
Highly recommended

"I think mobile phones have done more to infantilise and reduce children's resources and ability to be on their own, even in their own head, than anything else. "If you watch them, the minute they are on their own, they start to text someone. It is an even more facile contact with the world than television. That's facile enough because there is no inner life to television. If I could give advice to parents, I'd say don't allow children to watch any more than three hours a week of television and don't let them have a mobile."
