Email Etiquette

The Martha Stewart Show, December 2006

Sometimes, children feel their parents give more attention to their BlackBerrys than to them. Here are some guidelines from family therapists and professors for using your mobile email device.

-Do not check emails during dinner.
-Do not hide your email habits from family members.
-Obsessive users should not check email during the first hour of each day.
-When attending one of your children's functions, leave the device in the car or at home.
-Decide on an email-free block of time.

The toy Martha showed was My Very Own Berry Assistant manufactured by Novelty Inc., and available at select convenience stores, gas stations, and 99-cent stores.
