Re: provide resources to parents to help cut down on their kids' device use

And the huge number of poor bairns being pushed along in a pram with only the back of a phone to focus on. Sad.

Yeah. I don't have kids and have never wanted them. The best thing I can say about kids is that they eventually become taxpayers and some will even pay enough tax to help fund my retirement. But I find the sight of someone pushing a pram with one hand while the other holds their phone to the head disturbing. I feel sorry for the poor kid and wonder a)do they feel neglected? b)if so what impact is that going to have on their personality?

What is the kid learning from a parent that would rather talk to someone over a telephone than the child alongside them?
