I was asked recently how can we keep our young children away from mobile phones and other electronic gadgets?
You might not like my answer.
Don't use them.
I've seen too many mothers handing their young child a mobile phone to keep them quiet at the masjid, to get them to eat or when they are busy and need the kids to be quiet.
Our children wouldn't have quite the intense reaction they do around these mobile appliances in the first place if we didn't use them as a pacifier to hush or entertain them...and....
….if they didn't see us with them in hand so often.
have a big part to play in this, because many of us ourselves are addicted to our phones.
Yes, addicted and often in denial.
