Smart phone addition is a real problem in the world today, especially among teens. Thanks to a recent study done by Reuters and Common Sense Media we know that most teens who are addicted to their smart phones will check them at least hourly, and they feel the need to message back immediately, regardless if it’s a text, Snapchat, Vine or I.M.
Reuters reported that the majority of parents concurred, with 59 percent of those with children between ages 12 and 18 saying their kids cannot give up their phones, according to a poll of 1,240 parents and children by Common Sense Media.
The findings from the nonprofit group, which focuses on the effects of media and technology on children, highlighted the tension such close ties to devices can cause, with it disrupting driving, homework and other time together.
About a third of those polled said they argue every day about screen use, the San Francisco-based group said.Source – Newsmax
