    Yet many parents make a living by posting videos and pictures of their kids daily on social media. They use their kids to make money. What a disgrace.

    It’s disgusting. The kids of the iPhone addicted are being grossly neglected.

    So important to engage with our kids — and set a good example!

    My dad never put down the newspaper or his favorite print magazine. I survived and even kind of admire my father’s dedication to “learning something.” I do agree that phones are different as when a kid gets one there are far worse distractions beyond reading, but the idea that parents have to spend more time with their kids is not necessarily true (in my opinion).

    Some of these kids are probably better off, a lot of parents should not be.

    There is no end to it
    it will get far worse
    Eventually the phones will be built into the human body there will be no escape
    the phones will own us and the networks direct us… We are now prisoners of our own technology and whoever owns and directs the phones directs the world

    Our time with our kids is limited due to work/school/sleep schedules whereas access to our phones is not. We utilize these devices during work hours and after kids’ bedtime. As alarming as the click bait headline is, it makes sense that it would be the case. What is more important in this article is the good news – that parents recognize that screen time is destructive to relationships and childrearing – and are making efforts to dial it back and spend more meaningful hours with their children during the brief window we have to spend with them.
