I admit-- I'm a phone addict. And with so much of my life and work happening online these days, it's probably gotten a little worse over the years. Can you relate? I can't be the only one who struggles with this, right?
I got the idea for this headline while taking the kids to the playground to give my dear wife a little break. After looking for clothes, shoes, and socks, getting everyone in the car, and driving to the park, I finally let them loose and sat down on a nearby bench to get another shot of social media dopamine that phone addicts like me need 800 times a day.
Just as I was sitting down and getting comfortable next to the other parents who also seemed to be phone addicts, I heard my twin boys laughing hysterically. I looked up to see that one of them was walking on top of the monkey bars and the other one had climbed up the outside of a massive tube slide and was now 20 feet off the ground.
