I would go absolutely insane without my phone to stay in touch with the world. I could ditch the phone but rocking in the corner of the playground is not a good look so Meh heh heh
DD knows the deal. She understands i can either be at home with her and do work on my computer and phone OR i can be off at work all day like her daddy is. We plan regular breaks together so she can have my undivided attention for a while, but she understands that cant be all day.
It is about balance for sure. I don't have an iphone. I know I would become addicted. I have also shut down my FB account. But yeah, the park is soooo boring. Sorry if I'm not basking in the glow of my children's monumental park achievements, but I like sassy am looking, but probably not really seeing. We all need a break, from the every day. Some people use iphones, some zone out. So what.
People are so judgemental over the silliest things.
I did see a mother the other day whose daughter was injured, she spend the entire time on her iphone whilst waiting to see a doctor, only stopping to tell her kids to shut up and threaten to smack them because they were being noisy (they weren't) it would have been hours, maybe 2 or three by that point. I think that is a bit full on myself.
I also met a friend of a friend and she spent the entire time on facebook. I thought that was pretty rude, we were supposed to be having morning tea.
I dont see a problem, as Long as its in moderation... I'm on my phone right now while DD is playing...
She is very independent and is more than happy playing on her own... I normally feel rejected when I do sit down with her as she pushes me away and says no mum. But if she calls out or comes to show me something the phone goes straight down.... Hmm really should use this time to clean not to bh or fb lol :/
Well too much of anything is bad isn't it? On your phone too much... Not good. It's like everything in life. Even going to the gym obsessively isn't good. Everything in moderation.
If you're on your phone at the park, you can still look up every 30 seconds and check your children. No probs, but if you're on it and your children are in front if you speaking to you and needing your attention constantly then yeah perhaps you need to get a grip.
