How much time each day do you spend looking at your phone's screen?
I'm sure it's substantial.
And before I start writing about everyone else who is addicted to their smart phone, I must make a confession. I was addicted as well. I constantly interacted with my phone for most of the day. Yes, much of it was business related, but much was not related to business. Sometimes I'd even wake up in the middle of the night and check for updates, emails, etc. Can you relate?
Adults have grown more concerned about the amount of time their children are spending on a smart phone. But, as adults, we can't say much, because we are addicted as well and they are watching us. In fact, 40% of teenagers have the same concern for their parents.
How can we be hypocritical to tell children not to spend as much time on their phones, when they see us spending just as much or even more time on our phones?
I wonder how many special moments we miss with our kids because we are glued to our screens. One day we are going to look up from our phones and our kids will be grown and gone. And we will regret looking at a screen more than our kid's face.
