How to Manage Cell Phones in the Classroom When I ask the students why they are so attached to their devices with the small (some aren't so small) screens, I invariably get the response, "It's my life." I just don't get it and probably never will, but here is my attempt at understanding.

It was my friend’s 5-year-old daughter “Kate,” (a pseudonym) standing outside of her house in a bright yellow bikini, the street address clearly visible behind her on the front door.
