It seems we’re never without them these days. Cellphones call us, text us, email and entertain us. Now psychologists are telling parents and caregivers to put them down because cellphones may be hazardous to our children’s mental health.
To find out the effect all those cellphone calls have on kids, ConsumerWatch did an informal playground survey.
“How do you feel when your mommy and daddy are on the phone?” we asked.
“Sad,” said one 4-year-old.
“Kinda sad,” agreed her friend.
