Today I saw a mother, grandmother, and tot about 8 months old. The women were focussed on their phones and they had propped up an iPad in front of the baby. The baby was trying it's best to communicate and was completely ignored. Am I just old fashioned to think this is disgraceful?
What on earth did we do before screens? Well, for a start , important things would be sorted out by 'phone or mail before going out for a coffee. Then the baby would be kept happy by a toy, or even by one of the adults actually talking to it or interacting with it.
