How to keep your cell phone and other wireless devices from disrupting family time

Rebel Dad Brian Reid is also a guest poster on Leslie Morgan Steiner's Washington Post blog On Balance. He recently shared his common-sense tips for keeping his various wireless devices from intruding on his family time (including, duh, turn them off). Good reading for the Crackberry addicts among us. Great ideas in the comments, too.

The world will not stop.
