You are wondering what is this condition? Did you know that it’s the fear of being away from your mobile phone? Our dependence on smartphones is now absolute and we depend on them so often. I am no stranger to texting my children. When I go out with the grand children I have my phone close by. Whether it’s taking photos of them, or sending a text to their mum or checking messages. It’s certainly a distraction. As a society we feel naked without our phones. ( this is NOT romantic!)
I really do like capturing moments of fun – cardboard box playing, chasing the dog, in the sand pit or at the park. I also like to record them singing, dancing and dressing up. My fingers tap in the pin number, the brain switches to photo gallery and presto, I am in the mood for visual celebration. The question remains – can I break my mobile phone habit and simply relax with the kiddies?
