I know I’m guilty of losing watch over my kids when we take a trip to the playground. Which is why I may bring the phone with me, but I try to leave it in the car when we’re playing.
The hard part is the iPhone is also my camera. So I take it out to grab a great shot of the boys at the water park and … next thing you know I’m 5 tweets deep into a discussion.
I try not to be “that Dad,” but sometimes it happens.
We know we shouldn’t do it, but damn those phones are addictive. Now other parents with smart phones are spying on you not spying on your kids. Parents on Phones is a tumblog with the tag line “the culture of mobile phones, and parental neglect.”
Guilty parents and their pics, after the jump.
How are you when you’re out with your kids? Is the phone in your pocket, or your hand? Are you always actively engaged with your kids, or do you drift off into the web?
