glued to

Hi teachers,

My child is glued to his mobile phone all day long. Is it correct?

Many thanks.


The child was glued to the television all evening.
The dog glued its eyes on the stranger.

In place of 'glued to, what phrase should I use?
Please suggest. Thanks.

Maybe “The child was transfixed by/mesmerized by/engrossed in/riveted to his mobile phone all day long.”

Thank you very much, Luschen.
Thank you enhancing my vocabulary. My sentence is also correct, right?

Yes, Untaught, your sentence is correct.

Thank you very much, Lushen.
Riveted to OR Riveted on?

riveted to
