Alright, this is annoying me: My kids friends come over and all they do is sit there together with goddam motherfucking cell phone in their hands. They dont socialize, do kids shit, nothing. Just sit there with that fucking cell phone in their hands obsessively texting each other or whatever else this snapchat instagram whatsapp go fuck yourself shit they do is. I'm preparing to ban these devices from my house with their friends. I already had to ban skype and have taken away the kids ipod and ipad more than once. Its an addiction. I even went to the school principal to let him know, which he was already aware and agreed this shit is bad for their development. What's annoying me most is other parents are doing nothing to slow this trash down and not monitoring the behavior. My oldest got a message at 11:30 pm on a weekday last year. That was it. They turn that shit in before bed and I contacted that kids parents. Too much permissiveness nowadays and I'm as liberal as they come.
