This past week I presented my findings on cell phone addiction to my Psychology class. It's a problem. Many of the teens I spoke with cited social media as a factor in their unhappiness and indeed many of them said they felt anxious and depressed at times. Dr. Cavanagh's conclusion is where we need to begin the discussion with our teens and even adults. Let's start spreading information about the importance of understanding the addictive nature of cell phones (and I am going to focus just on cell/smart phones) and giving the teens (and even adults) ways of cultivating healthier relationships with our devices.
