Does Your Phone Babysit?
I can not find my phone anywhere. I have searched in the kitchen, in my purse, in the couch cushions. The chance that I have misplaced it is likely but my son's current obsession with playing solitaire on it means that I have now found it lying on the beanbag chair in the basement.
Adults' handy tech devices have become kids' favourite toys. Since we are a Blackberry family our toddlers to tweens are proficient at Brickbreaker and Word Mole.
My kids love my technology way more than me (I mean they love the technology more than I do, but perhaps they love it more than they love me too). I’m just glad I always have my phone on me for those inevitable long boring moments. I’m not the only one: the doctor’s waiting room is like an software testing room, every child is using some kind of App to get them through the hours of boredom.
