  • It keeps the family connected.

    Modern technology has made it easier for parents and children to connect. It's this technology due to which parents are able to understand themselves and their kids better. Also, the technology provides different perspectives and knowledge. When you come across different instances from people's lives,you tend to broaden the horizon of your thoughts.
    For instance,you might not be meeting or talking to your relatives very often due to geographical barriers or lack of things to talk about.
    But because of technology people are able to relate to each other easily and share better things that consequently help everyone to grow in the family. Also, social networking sites like facebook, whatsapp helps families to be a part of each other's happiness.

  • It completely does.

    Modern technology makes family life more liveable, safer and comfortable. It is a great idea to create this type of tech and bring it into the world. Even as I write this, I am using the computer. Most adults owns an Pad, an iPhone or some other type of tablet

    Thank you

  • It help the community to stay connect with friend and family and mates.

    Helped me alot Today, we can’t imagine ourselves without technological advances such as cars, microwaves, cell phones, computers, and televisions. However, technology won’t stop here, but develop further. As technology develops, there are not only advantages, but disadvantages from them. A few advantages of upgraded technology are that one can save time and money and life will be made easier as a result of not having to do all the hard labor. In contrast, the disadvantages of upgraded technology are that people will loose their jobs to machines that will do the work for them. In addition, machines and robots are too complex for most people to use.It keeps the family connected. Modern technology has made it easier for parents and children to connect.

  • It CAN enhance, which does not mean it DOES enhance

    First of all, the question is about family life, and not about life in general terms. Seems like the contributor who first answered yes got a little confused by that, and, therefore, i disagree with him.
    Technology, by itself is not integrative or desintegrative in a social standpoint. It can be used for isolatting even more the individual just as much it can be used to bring together families (and in this sense, any other groups of people).
    For instance, a tablet can be used for solo games and also group games (which can be united both in real life - as "Clue" - and even online).
    This way, it can either enhance family living or completely wreak its bonds.

  • I do not believe so:

    Modern technology actually does two things that are detrimental to bonding:

    1. It automates the home. It removes the need to perform as many home-based actions as humans used to do which in turn deters filial and homestead pride.

    2. It automates communication. Though exceeding far beyond the family many of the most common forms of communication are being misused and ultimately are not strong forms of interpersonal communication to begin with like texting. The automation of communication allows for less facetime and essentially a greater distance between all persons, family included.

    Now technology can connect, and it does, but the level of connection is very low if not at all present. It's easily misinterpreted. It's not as engaging. It's a distant standard of life. Technology that automates the home such as dishwashers and the like are not bad for the busy and such but again it greatly diminishes the value of the behavior; instead of doing your dishes for a child it's "load it" which is fine but when you come across an apt or living situation without a dishwasher? ... ? You see it a lot in younger people where they can't cook if they don't have a microwave because no one teaches them; if they do not take a specific interest in cooking they learn on the fly as they grow older and are forced to do so. The problem is that a lot of life ends up like this where basic skills like money management are never handled because instead of writing checks and so forth in a register ( and physically writing does help retain awareness versus swiping cards ) you just swipe or tap and go and people nickle and dime themselves to death; since management isn't required for kids or younger adults / teens it hits like a truck when you're in your 20's and you have $x to do anything with.

    Technology has done a world of good, I am not a naysayer against technology, but it also has done an immense disservice to a society of "Go go go" and I am referring to the global society at large.

  • Life isnt the same

    Technology does have advantages in family life, but they are al the same , it helps you keep connected and safe. There are many more disadvantaged including the fact as it is so portable thus people are on it constantly watching videos and do not have time to engage with there family. Secondly parents are connected 24/7 to their work and spend less time with their children and thirdly families rarely spent time playing games such as scrabble or cards as each individual plays a different game on their device. I am not against technology, I am using it right now and I know how addictive it is. But I also know it is fracturing our families.
