Get off the phone. Here's a message to all you parents. Get off the phone. Get off the iPhone. Get off the Blackberry. Get off the smart phone and be more present with your kids. I'm guilty of this. My 4-year-old daughter had a dance recital the other day.
When she was up against the wall not doing her stuff, I figured she was just talking and hanging out with the other kids. So, I would check my phone. I checked the ever-important e-mails. You know, the e-mails that need to be answered all the time no matter what you're doing?
