Why Not Spend Them Together?

I was driving near my house, and passed a stop where the children wait for the school bus. I noticed a young mother, typing away on her cell phone, while her four year old son stood next to her, waiting and watching.

It seemed a little lonely, and a bit baffling, and I wanted to call out, “Please put the phone away until you get your son on the bus!” I remember being little myself, and what a special time that was. A child’s earliest years are so precious, why not spend them together?
