Kids in re-hab for mobile phone addiction.

I don't have kids but surely this is just a sign of things to come, what next, computer addicts?

Children can become addicted to any modern day gadgets if parents don't put restraints in place.
Computer games are no exeption.
One of my sons would happily play games and surf the net all day if i let him.
He doesn't of course as i don't allow it.
One case where i feel you have to blame the parents.
Mind you i find it hard to drag myself away sometimes,but i must as i'm an adult(O:!
Ok,i admit it.My wife puts the restrainers on me.) )O:!

Not just children.

I saw a report some time ago (no link I'm afraid) which showed agitation, uncertainty and stress when some adults were separated from their mobiles.

As laurie53 says not just children.
We have two young employees who have been given warnings for continualy texting when they should be working.

Ask my wife who it is... :0(
