Is it just a 'bad habit' like standing with your hands in your pockets? Because we don't usually see a picture of a kid with his hands in his pockets and come to the conclusion that 'pants with pockets are something to worry about.'

I don't see anything in that article to suggest so. Half of what he assumes Glass will do (projecting fields from the camera over the eye in real time), Glass doesn't do. The other concerns about overlaying things in the field and causing a disjunction in focus also are not based on what Glass does - glass puts its overlay in a corner, not overlaying the reality. It also isn't clear that he knows there is a problem with Objects in focus - he makes the assumption because Glass isn't doing what he is doing.

The article sounded more like the guy making sure everyone knows he did it first, and getting a little upset at Google for doing what he was doing without doing it his way.

And nothing in the article indicates that whatever happens to the wearer would affect the wearer's kids.
