Are you afraid of being away from your mobile phone? You may have (dun dun dun!) Nomophobia:

It's called Nomophobia, as in "No mobile phone phobia," and 66 percent of the people surveyed said they have it.
That number is up from a similar study four years ago, where 53 percent of people admitted to a fear of losing their cellphones. [...]

The study showed that the younger you are, the more likely you are to be afflicted with Nomophobia. Women are also more likely to have it than men.

Wondering if you have Nomophobia?

The warning signs include: Obsessively checking your phone, constantly worrying about losing it even when it's in a safe place, and never turning it off.

I rarely use my mobile. It's usually plugged in to the charger on my computer desk where it sits collecting dust.
Only reason I unplug it is if I'm driving somewhere. Need a cell just in case of an accident or something, but even then I forget it quite often.

I have a GREAT android app on my daughter's smartphone. It is called PARENTAL TIME CONTROL. I select the times of day and days of week her phone is available for her to use. There are NO monthly fees! Here is the direct link:
No Nomophobia for her!
It makes me a better parent!
