Children are hooked on screens— starting ever younger, engaging more intensely, using media for more of their waking hours. Many are fatigued, anxious, distracted, and withdrawn.
Research shows that tweens are now interacting with screens every day for an average of 6 hours, teens for 9 hours – and 1/3 of that time they are using 2 or more screens simultaneously, resulting in nearly 12 hours of screen media exposure!
Half of today’s teens believe they are “addicted” to their smartphones.
And some appear to be – online all night with gaming, social media, porn or videos, sleeping through school, avoiding family, friends, and previously enjoyed activities, sullen, irritable, even suicidal when offline. Boston Children’s Hospital addresses their need for help.
