Parents: Are your phones really smart?

Let’s talk about phones, growing up I had one.
It was in the living room, and talking was fun.

Then they became cordless, nothing was tying us down.
Now in my room I went, and talked ’bout things that were all over town.

Then there was cellular, what on earth was that?
I soon found we could always chat!A distracted family

Every year phones seemed to change.
To me it was bit strange.

Why is it called smart? What does it do?
I wish I could say. If I had only knew…

This would change my life in good ways… and bad.
My kids know no other and say “this is rad”.

So everything in moderation “they” say…
What are your thoughts? Leave us your say…

Below is a video called “LOOK UP”. It made me think… Think about what I might be missing that is right in front of me while I’m too busy look down at my phone. What are your thoughts?
