How much time do you spend online during the day?

How has technology changed the way that you parent?  Do you find yourself online often during the day?  Do you always have your phone with you?

>I was thinking the other day about how much things have changed. I never saw my Mom on the computer (I think I was in high school before we got one) :). She was rarely on the phone for very long (& only in the kitchen if she used it- since it was attached to the kitchen wall) and the only show that I ever saw her watch was Guiding Light when I was little and then Oprah once I got older. She would read books or sit on our back porch to relax (or play games with us- which I think I have carried on to our house- I love to play board games with our kids!)
So we pretty much had her undivided attention at home, in the car, out running errands…

I wanted to know what other Mom’s thought on the issue, so I ran a poll on a local website in our area, for Moms in our area and here were the results:

 How much do you spend online/on the phone a day? (during your child’s awake time)

2-3 hours a day……..   42% (26 votes) 

1-2 hours a day……..   31%  (19 votes)

Less than 1 hour……    26%  (19 votes)
