What i know is that people are so reliant on their devices that they have a mini heart attack when they don’t have it with them. There are many studies that show that youths are very reliant on their phones and can barely function if they don’t have their devices that day.
What i learned is that In studies they said that without their phones youths feel like they have lost a limb, the phantom limb syndrome that is usually suffered by amputees. This leaves young people vulnerable because they almost can do day to day tasks without them, remembering phone numbers, doing simple math without the calculator app, and talking to people online instead of face to face.
What I learned was that at a young age kids are given a phone or a computer and they start to rely on that as it makes things easier. They get used to the ease of the internet and just the device in general because these devices are made to be like that so the kids don’t realize the dependance is forming and they learn to live with it as opposed to living without it.
