Please take a look at the photo above, what do you see?
Does this look familiar?
What’s your impression of the photo?
Now here’s the question….. How many of you or your kids does that? I have personally seen it too often and even have friends do that to me many times.
This is something I talk to my children about and we have had many discussions about phones. I don’t know about you, but I am against having a mobile phone on any dining table while having a meal with friends or family.
Let’s put you in the situation. You’ve made yourself available to meet up with your friend for morning tea/coffee (picture yourself in the photo) eagerly chatting and sharing things about your day, your life, your family. While your friend is happily chatting with you at the same time she is checking her mobile phone and texting occasionally, laughing at the text content while answering your questions.
So let’s pause for a while…
What’s going through your mind right now?
How are you feeling? … I will leave the answer to you!
There is an ‘app’ called “RESPECT”!! We all should apply respect to those around us.
Teach the importance and values of respect to your children!
