9:21 am
talking about it. the problem is has become this thing that is disconnecting us. we could be looking at our phones and going through instagram and facebook while having a conversation. part of the problem is we're teaching our kids that that is okay. that's what -- the message we're sending to them. we're also sending the message that you're not as important as that video. >> right. >> that is really harmful to them. they feel like they are secondly important. >> i want to cry. thank you so much. it is all about mindfulness. >> yes. >> national day of unplugging starts at sundown tonight and continues until tomorrow night. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> you can sign a pledge to unplug and find out about more on ktvu.com. the question of the day throughout mornings on 2 has been about disconnecting. we have been asking you, can you go 24 hours straight without using your smart phone or computer? why or why not? we have asked you to tweet us and leave comments on facebook.
