I find it very difficult not to play with my iPhone all the time, but I make a particular effort not to do it in front of dh at times when he is not playing with a toy.

Ah ha, the truth comes out! It is actual iPhone envy, a well known condition!

Perhaps we need some boundaries in our house wrt iPhone use! Anyone have any rules?

I can think of some rules that aren't too harsh. smile

-No iPhone/phones at the dinner table, whether it be breakfast, lunch or tea unless it is very important.
-No using the iPhone whilst someone is currently talking to you.
-Keep the iPhone in a safe place and stay away from it for at least two hours each day.

How's those? grin

Good rules yukana. You should develop an app to remind you of them

Hormoneoverload Wed 29-Jun-11 08:12:47

Sound good to me. I want to add no iPhone in bed but that's unrealistic. I read books in bed why shouldn't he have phone?

YANBU. My DH's is like an appendage, permanently attached to him!

Good rules, Yukana. Pretty much what I do.

You could also add:

No secret iPhoning when you're supposed to be doing something else.

On second thoughts, don't. That rule would be impossible to obey grin

I want to say YABU, but if I am being honest YANBU. I am guilty of the same sin , I cannot put mine down. It is an addiction no doubt about it.
