On my travels out and about around the area I've begin to notice something new, well it's new to me, I might have just been unobservant in the past.
What I've seen are a lot of parents, well presumably, out walking with their young children while they listen to a music player through headphones. Typically the parent's walking just ahead of the child who tags behind them.
Is that really safe?
Aside from the safety what does it do to the child to know that their parent would rather listen to music than talk to them?
It can't be good.
