Daily Talker: What are you teaching your children by always being on your cellphone?

DAILY TALKER

Do you use your cellphone around your children? Are you always on it in front of them? Is it sitting on the table at every meal?

A new study out today looks at how parents and caregivers use their cellphones in front of kids.

Researchers observed dozens of caregivers eating at restaurants around the Boston area with one or more children with them.

Some left their devices on the table, others were constantly absorbed in them.

How did the kids react?

Some children accepted the lack of engagement and entertained themselves.

Others acted out in a bid for attention.

This study raises more questions.

What are you teaching your children by being on your cellphone constantly or always having it with you?

Do you think this could hurt your child’s development?
