In the last two or three years, I have really disconnected myself from my phone. Especially after deleting all my social media accounts.
Now, I only need my phone for making calls, or checking something. Otherwise, I don't even see my phone for half the day.
Seems really different from the time 3-4 years ago, when I was buried in my phone. Spending all my evening watching videos on facebook. Or scrolling on instagram. Lol.
I have a really good connection like that with my nephew. He is 10 now. I miss those days when he was really small and cute.
Now, even though he is just 10, I feel he is all grown up now. Understands a lot more than kids of his age do. Whenever we talk, or meet, he talks about his days, what he is doing in sports, or his school etc. As opposed to kids of his age in my family who are spending all their time in the last 6 months playing games on their phones/tablets.
Lol, I have an older nephew of 16, he barely talks with me once or twice in a week. He spends all his day reading manga, watching anime etc.
Kids are really different these days.
