This episode of 20/20 focuses on three families that struggle with the excessive use of technology. Walk down any street or through any mall, and everyone is bowing to their screen. Our devices are beeping, buzzing and begging us to tweet, reply, post, forward… 20/20 spent a year on the road interviewing and meeting people who were held hostage to their devices. Experts discuss addiction, changes that may occur to the brain, and how to get unplugged.
