Knowing when to text them

When I was a freshman in college, I waited a full month before I asked my Mom if I could come home for a visit. It felt like forever. We talked a bunch that first month over the phone, but she never asked me if I wanted to come home. Was that hard for her?…

Somebody's watching you

One of my son's favorite activities seems to be asking when he will be old enough to have a smartphone.



This is a conversation that we have had often...and my answer hasn't changed. But, I understand why my son likes to ask: He is trying to wear me down. (That is one of his primary jobs as a…

Shutting down the cell phone conversation

My son likes to remind me of his age.



"Before you know it, I'll be nine," he says. "And then I will be able to be alone at home by myself after school."…

I love my phone; I hate my phone

I am in my car, halfway backed out of my driveway. I realized that I had forgotten my phone and I am having a internal debate over whether I am going to go back inside the house and get it. On the one hand, I am only doing a few errands on my day off; on the other hand, it is my phone.…

How high school teen movies will need to change

Think about the teen movies you used to watch from the 80s to the 2000s. Try to name one without a teenage party of some sort taking place. I'll wait.…

A global view of children with smartphones

My son has asked me (for what must be the thousandth time) when he will be old enough to have his own smartphone. I pause long enough for him to tell me a list of children in his second grade class who already have one. I tell him that he isn't old enough for one yet and that the circumstances in his life don't warrant him having one "in case of emergencies."…

You will pay attention to me now

My phone buzzes on the desk.



I am in the middle of writing something that I am terrified of forgetting, so I ignore it and keep on writing. By the time I am done writing, I have forgotten that my phone has…

A closer look at social screentime

"Mom, when can I get my own phone?"



This is a question that my son has asked me several times. I usually ask him why he wants his own phone, and he tells me he wants it to play a game or to use it to check traffic for me while we are in the car (he likes the Waze app). Very rarely does he mention that he…

Mommy, please put the phone down

In my head, I still think I do a good job of not using my smartphone in front of my son. That may or may not be reality: I have been working a lot lately, so I know he has seen me distracted by my phone. But the subject is on my mind a lot: When I am with my son, I should be fully with my son.…

Living life on default mode

When I look at my phone, I see all the apps that I use the most on my first screen. I took all those factory apps that I never use and stuck them in a folder so I could have more room, and put the apps that I have to have but rarely use on a secondary screen. At the time, I thought of this as me staying organized, but after reading this piece on…

Who are they talking to?

By now, I think I have mentioned that my son is a talker enough times that I will have to apologize to him when he turns into a teenager for labeling him that way. (I'm not wrong, by the way,…

Home Phone Etiquette

Everybody is accessible ALL the time now.  Most of the time, this is a wonderful thing.  My car breaks down? No problem! I just call for a tow truck on my cell.  Late for my dinner engagement?  No worries; I’ll just shoot them a text message.  However, there are those moments (and I know you know what I’m…

Put your phone down and parent

My son is sitting on my lap as I write this post. He is watching the way my fingers move across the keyboard and he is reading the words as I type them.



I try very hard to not use my phone too much in front of my son. Yes, it is very rewarding when it is my turn in a game, or I get a text message from a friend. But, he is my son, and he is much more rewarding…

Distracted dining hurts families

When I was little we had a simple rule in our household: No eating in front of the television. We ate our meals at the tables in the kitchen or dining room. In nice weather, we ate outside on the deck.…

Leaving the house without your phone

Last week while my husband was traveling I took my son out on a date (which means he got to pick dinner and then we went out for dessert). As I was answering his questions over ice cream, he asked me about nitrogen (because that is what five-year-olds are into these days). I went into my purse to get out my phone to look up more information, but realized it wasn't there.…
