    Great article, Sara. I have three children and know that even upper-grade elementary school children that don't have cellphones can get teased about it by friends and acquaintances. I wonder if the 70 percent of those adults surveyed were being honest when they said they feel they use their cellphones a reasonable amount of time. I know I spend too much time playing on my phone. Doesn't anyone know if there is an app similar to Moment but for Android phone users to track accurate smartphone use times? I also agree that "phubbing" has become a significant societal issue.
