And a new generation gets addicted to smart phones

I was on the #10 going home late afternoon, and you boarded the bus with your one-year-old, who immediately began screaming bloody murder. Your immediate response was to quickly dial something up on your smart (?!) phone and hold it in front of his face for the entire duration of the trip. He sat slack-jawed and glazed-eyed, slumped in his stroller for the rest of the journey. From Barrington to the Bridge Terminal in Dartmouth, he literally did not blink once. Do you realise that you're messing with the delicate neuro-circuitry of your baby's developing brain? It's appalling that Gen Z kids are drugging their babies with smart phones like a narcotic, propped against their eyeballs, to comfort or silence them: trying to fill their gaping lack of parenting skills.
