Mommy please look at me, not your phone!
I was thinking about writing this post for a long time but today I met a couple. I know it’s nothing ordinary but that couple made a big impression on me. Why? They looked like they are together but in the same time-separate. They were holding their hands and looking at their phones. When did that happen that people can’t talk to each other? It’s so sad that we can’t leave without our phones, iPad, tablets etc. And you know what’s making me even more sad? That our kids are suffer because of that.
How it’s possible? Once I was in a bus with my son and in front of us was a lady with her daughter. She could be around 9 years old and she was really annoying. Her mother all the time was telling her to stop act like a weirdo. But you know what? She even didn’t look at her because was checking something on her phone. She didn’t look at her for a f*cking two seconds. It’s obvious that this little girl wanted a little bit of attention.
How you want to raise your kids if you’re spending your whole time to check your facebook, instagram, twitter? Who knows what else… If you want to make them a good people you need to spend with them a quality time. You need to be with them not with your phone. In fact your phone doesn’t need you as much as your kids. Yes, I know you need to charge a battery from time to time. Oh, Yes of course you need to choose some really cool case. Oh wait…but your kids don’t need to get some meals to have a power for playing and exploring? Or maybe they don’t need a clothes? Chose by yourself what is more important for you.
I’m a blogger and I know what I’m talking about. Everyday I have a lot of emails, I need to write some posts etc. So I’m checking my phone to be on a time with everything but on the end of the day what is more important? Emails or my baby’s first steps? Can I afford to lose it? Of course not. Never ever. My child is the most important creature in my life. So when I will have a free weekend you know what I will do? I will switch off my phone and I will be the most happiest person because I will be with my son for 100%.
And what you will choose?
