First of all, I'd like to share with you a true story I'd ever got from a popular TV program called Master Class. It was in a taped program on March 5th,2006. The celebrated singer Leo Ku taught a child named Wang Haocheng to sing the popular Chinese song 父亲 in the music class. Before they began singing this song, Leo asked his student,"Would you please make some comments on your father?" Wang just sat up straight without any words. Then Leo asked once again,"If you don't want to talk about your father's strong points or shortcomings, you can tell me your true feelings about the relationship between you and your father." For this moment, the silent boy stammered out that his father didn't seem to be willing to play with him, instead he was always playing with the cellphone. At last, the little boy cried and many grown-ups on the spot cried,too.
The tears reminded many famlies of their behaviors in their daily life. Ever since the smart phones were born in this world, relationship between people have been affected more or less. When old friends get together and have a meal, they talked to each other by WeChat instead of a face-to-face communication. In lovers' appointments, people can even be more obsessed with their phones than their boyfriends or girlfriends. And what really annoyed me was that sometimes I hang out with my family members, it seems that they love to be phubbers ignoring all words I said and all things we should see. Phubbing is likely to have ruined the relationship between us nowadays.
So will cellphone really ruin the relationship between people? It depends. What we should do is to be more rational in front of the smart phones rather than throwing them away. For instance, during a gathering, we can begin our talks with what we learn from the news in mobile phones and if necessary, we can demonstrate the piece of news to our fellows that everyone could see it on your phones. While getting along with our children, we can also show them the interesting stories we have read on the smart phones and simultaneously tell him or her how to have proper attitude towards the temptation from the smart phones.
Everything is changing in the ever-growing economic society. We humans also have to make changes in order to be adapted to the brandnew world. In this situation, it's impossible for us to give up using smart phones.So why not think of suitable solutions to the problems caused by phubbing?
