Guy Adams on his son’s addiction to the iPad:
The sense of shame and sadness which came over me when I realised that my infant son was an addict will stay with me forever.
It happened at the ungodly hour of 4 o’clock one morning earlier this month, when my wife Katie and I were disturbed by the click of our bedroom door opening, followed by the patter of tiny feet.
I opened my eyes to find our three-year-old, William, standing at the bedside table in his pyjamas. He pulled the duvet, to make sure I was awake, then grabbed my hand.
‘Daddy,’ he announced, with a sense of urgency in his little voice. ‘I need the iPad.’
