people so engrossed with activities on their mobile phone. It’s obvious that
this behavior is so widespread that we all know someone who has a problem

this means that as the parent you’ll be the first one changing your ways. Since
it’s easier to keep away from your phone, when it’s away from you, establish
physical distance between yourself and the device. It’s soooo tempting to “look
just this once” when the phone rings, vibrates, or chimes that is less tempting

the late actor, disclosed that he discovered his kidney problem a long
time ago but like most people, he thought he could manage it.
According to her, he ignored the pain and continued working without
paying much attention. He only took his drugs and medication once in a

believed he would survive it like he did the gunshot and death of his
parents. He was not a man given to worrying about things. He believed it
was not a coincidence his parents named him Munachimso, a name which
means God is walking with me.’
