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

Are prams still popular in the UK? I don't recall seeing many there, but my trips are nearly always to the same part of the same city, so hardly representative.

In the US, pretty much all parents use "strollers", which have the child facing front. They can't see the phone mummy or daddy is holding, just the tree they're about to be pushed into.

Of course hipster parents use one of the many varieties of slings and other on-body carriers instead. And I simply carry my grandkids around, because doing it the hard way builds character. (I could make them walk, but then they'd get all the character.)
