Technology detox is a game that I really need to get into

COMMENT: All agencies must to held to account for Anne Savidge’s tragic death

Have your say

I read an article at the weekend which said that children, toddlers even, were becoming addicted to smartphones, tablets and the like.

Some parents are letting their children spend four hours or more a day on devices.

So the TV is finally being replaced as a nanny, and we are now to act surprised that toddlers are becoming addicted to new technology.

That’s what happens. And when the new next big thing comes out, no doubt some parents will let their kids spend far too much time on that too.

But what did surprise me was that a 28-day ‘technology detox programme’ can cost £16,000. Blimey, that’s a game that I need to get into – I’d happily detox people for that kind of cash.
