Get your child off their cell phone! That's what millions of Japanese parents are being told to do this week!
The Japanese prime minister warned parents about the dangers of allowing their kids to use cell phones for long periods of time.
This is in response to young kids becoming addicted to their phones and it has many people in Japan worried.
So many kids have cell phones that when one doesn't, he or she is made fun of for not having the latest phone out there.
Could this happen in the United States?
Well... it could be happening already!
Also, on the WBKO Dot-Com Desk...
