There will come a time in the future when we will look back and reflect on this
specific time in history as a major shift in a multitude of ways. The smartphone
was invented/introduced 10 years ago. Look how much has changed in that time.
What many of us view as harmless/normal/descretionary on our devices may at some
point be viewed as an addiction/lulled into carnal security/life
altering/leading to suicide & depression. Not to mention the still unknown
scope of cancers and damage to our eyes due to radiation and the blue light
emitting from our devices night and day. I hope kids and parents sit
down together and define boundaries now. All are affected by this. It’s up
to each family to decide what kind of people they will be during this
revolutionary time...simply sheep? Or independant minded individuals willing to
step away from the new norms and be willing to be scoffed and scorned?
This article is absolutely correct. Teens are spending far too much time on
electronic devices. As the article states, parents must get control
over their teens. Sitting around all day in sweatpants and crocs sending out
countless text messages is neither healthy nor productive. Teens must get
control over themselves. Our society must get control over this
problem. There is no time to lose.
