We think we are bad. I was in London last week and they are as bad as us, walking around staring into their mobile phones. It’s like the way we give out here about drinking too much and yet in London they still go to the pub for a couple of swift half’s during lunch hour.

Anyway, back to the smartphones. Just how damaging is our addiction to them becoming? Whatever about us adults, teenagers – in particular teenage girls who go around with them virtually glued to their hands – must be losing out in social skill development.
