Manner Monday – Week 2: Cell Phones

As seen on:

Turn off, or at least put down, the cell phone while in the presence of others.


  • When in the grocery store line this week, engage the clerk…not your cell phone.
  • Having lunch or dinner?  Let your cell phone go to voicemail.  Enjoy the people at your table, giving them your undivided attention.
  • While in the car with the kiddos, implement ‘tech check’* have everyone put down the technology and engage in some gold old-fashioned conversation.

* Thanks Michelle Anderson for passing along the lingo of ‘tech check’.
