IPhone Addiction Among Teens

Addiction Among Teens? ?

Smartphone addiction is real that could lead to a chemical imbalance in the brain. Addiction

to smartphones and internet is on the rise, and has acquired the form of a disease that has

the potential to harm the growing minds of teens. Compared to other teens, those with an

internet or smartphone addiction experience alterations in the key brain areas connected to

clinical measures of anxiety, depression and addiction.

Recognizing the growing smartphone addiction among children, two of Apple’s biggest

investors –JANA Partners LLC and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System or

CalSTRS) – have sent a letter to the tech giant to ensure that the company’s young consumers

used their product in an optimal manner. The investors have asked Apple to develop its

software to allow parents more options to limit their children’s smartphone use. The two

investors jointly control Apple shares worth $2 billion.

The letter cited various

studies and surveys on

how heavy smartphone

use negatively affected

children’s mental and

physical health. Urging

the corporation to help

children fight addiction

on its devices, the

shareholders have urged

the firm to give parents

more option to protect

their children’s health

and offer some effective

tools to help children

avoid addiction.

Give more control to parents

While Apple’s iOS offers parental controls, location sharing and access to certain kinds of

content, the investors have urged the tech giant to come up with software that would allow

parents to block social media services, limit screen time, allow the number of hours the phone

can be used and allow the parents to be able to set the user’s age on setup. Additionally, the

investors have also urged the corporation to establish an expert committee that should

include child development specialists to produce annual reports and offer the collected

information to researchers to investigate the issue.

As per the investors, addressing this issue would give more choices and options to consumers

and help protect the next generation. Citing the growing smartphone addiction among

teenagers as a complex issue, the investors have asked Apple to take initial steps to address

the concern, including educating and helping parents to make more informed decisions,

partnering with experts by taking additional research efforts, monitoring and reporting the

issue and issuing annual progress reports, giving new tools and options to parents to help

them make informed decisions and forming an expert committee to help study the issue,

monitor ongoing technological developments and integrate them into the lives of children

and teenagers.

Teenagers: More vulnerable to addiction

A behavioral disorder, smartphone addiction can affect one’s daily life functioning and helping

teens get away from it can be a big challenge in itself. Teen smartphone addiction includes

the repetitive and obsessive use of the device for other activities. An adolescent brain is still

in the developing stage, thus, teens are more susceptible to addiction and those addicted to

smartphones are more prone to substance use disorders and serious mental health problems

like anxiety, depression, drug and alcohol addiction. No matter how bad the addiction, it can

be treated with therapy or counseling sessions.

At the Teenage Drug Rehab Services, we understand that it can be tough and sad for parents

to see their teens get trapped in the self-destructive behavior of addiction. With the goal to

provide useful information regarding addiction, its dangers and various treatment options

available, representatives at the addiction treatment helpline can help you or your loved

ones learn more about teen substance abuse and its common signs and symptoms. It can also

help locate the best rehab centers for teens in your area.

treatment programs at top-rated teens addiction & rehab centers basis your needs.
