I live in my parent's house with two nephews. I am very annoyed with their habit. They cannot split with their mobile phone. They always bring their mobile phone in bathroom, toilet, kitchen and always keep it in their pocket. They are truly cannot leave this device, and maybe they cannot live without mobile phone. This view is so different when I was young. Hi mylotters, what do you think about my nephews, is it the same in your region? Please share...Thank...

Maybe it's just because we're older that it's hard to understand that constant need. I have had jobs where I had to be on the phone all the time, so I don't really enjoy being on the phone all the time. However, I do use the internet all day so maybe it's similar. I do think most kids or young adults these days are constantly using their mobile devices. I'm not sure whether it's something to worry about if they get their work done. And if they're not prone to losing their mobile devices.

I think, it is okay if they can manage their time for study and work, but in fact the device has damage their management to study and work, that's why I feel concern with them.

Kids nowadays are inseparable with their mobile phones. It is like they need to be updated with what is happening with their friends. My eldest son is just like that. He even sleeps with his mobile phone in his hand sometimes.

Kids are so addicted with gadgets today especially with their mobile phones. My kids are using their mobile phone for online games and social sites like Facebook. I think these modern technology is good- but sometimes making our kids too lazy to help and do other things.

Hi friend, I cannot see this condition, because they do not do important thing except talking and laughing with their friend and never care about us as their family. How can I let the view?

It is a famous quote that 'mobile phone are part of the limbs/hands'. It is like glued to them wherever they are. The thing that make me really felt annoyed is during family meal time together. These young ones are busy checking their messages on these gadgets and there is no family bonding time at the dining table. It seems these gadgets has taken all these supposed to be quality time away.

Yes, they have community on facebook, so they always talking and talking with their friend. I think all of their friends also have this attitude with their cellphone. I cannot imagine when all young people care with their community and do not care with their family. It is so sad, I think.

Can we call that cellphone addiction? That is why I do not want the kid in the house to own a cellphone because it will make these kids crazy. It is like a toy for them because they can have games there and they also communicate with other kids their age and God knows what they are texting to each other.

I live in a suburb in the USA, and the amount of kids around here that are attached to their phones and other devices is just ridiculous. Everywhere I go, be it a restaurant, the grocery store, college, or even a doctor's office, nearly everyone, even older adults, is on their phone. I find it almost tragic. People will be out at family dinners, but each person will be on their cell phone instead of talking and seeming like a family. I may only be twenty years old, and call me old-fashioned if you wish, but personally I feel that, unless it is important, you should be doing something more productive than texting all of your friends or playing dumb games on your phone all the time. Family, to me, is the most important thing in the world, and it seems that most people take it for granted, choosing instead to practically forget that their family exists. After family, I find education to be important. To me, it doesn't matter if it is required education, like homework for school, or just learning about something you have always been interested in, or picking up a new hobby. I feel as though you should be spending your time learning or doing something productive that you love than sitting around and remaining disconnected from the people around you.

Hi friend, I agree with you. I also concern that they will have attitude such as in your story, which a family but they do not talking each other. I think it is painful. I afraid lose my family because they more enjoy with their gadgets. This view very different when I was young, which is I and my brothers, sisters, and parents always talk about everything and laugh together.

I wonder how some people use mobile phone all the time. I also have friends who use mobile phone throughout without stopping. I think most probably they might be addicted with the mobile phones.

I think, you are right. They have addicted by cellphone and they cannot live without the device. They communicate with their community and play games. I think it can damage their concentration for study and work.

I do not have young ones in my house. I live with my own family of three. My has grown up and in college now. I believe most of the young ones are like that. It is hard for them to part with these modern gadgets. It has becomes a trend and the worst is they are playing games while walking on their way to else where. This is very dangerous. They may have been robbed or met with an accident!

Yes, you are right. Young people often use their gadgets in everywhere they want without consider the safety of others. I think it is bad attitude.

Yes the younger generation are out of control when it comes to phones and gadgets. It is a big problem all over no matter where you live. From kids texting and driving to just not paying attention to anything else but the stupid phone. You don't say how young your nephews are but some kids get them way to young and have no business having them. I grew up without a phone at my fingertips. I went to school without a phone and survived. I don't understand the parents getting their kids phones when they are so young. It is a major distraction for these kids and it is defnitely not helping them at all.

My daughter actually used to be like this and sometimes still is. It's not as bad since she moved but in others it's worse. Yes very confusing. She moved here with her husband and she left behind her very best friend. They have been friends for 20 years now and it was very emotional. But now that there is so much distance between them they are on the phone constantly. The only good part is that they mainly text and she does put the phone down. Now that they Skype it's gotten a bit better.
