There is not enough information in this article to tell me whether these are parents with no skills or an actual addiction. I am going to hold on to it for years and pull it out everytime someone rolls their eyes at me when I tell them my seven year old doesn’t need a cellphone. The eye roll is generally paired with this statement “How are you going to keep in touch with him?”
I take a deep breath and as calmly as possible explain that as my son is SEVEN there are really limited places (read NONE) that he’s going to be without my knowledge. I mean Pleeaasseee, he hasn’t been to the Viper Room since the holidays.
