I am not a big cell phone person. In fact, all I have is a tracfone where I purchase minutes based on my usage. Usually 100 minutes lasts me 90 days or more. I do not use my cell phone. I think it is a distraction. If someone wants to talk to me, he/she may call our home phone and talk. I despise talking on the phone while driving because it takes my eyes off the road and that is how many traffic accidents occur. If you have been in an accident recently, it asks on the accident report if a person involved in the accident was using their cell phone while driving.
Every child is precious and truly a gift from God and they deserve our full attention while growing up. We are their example in life.
