Earlier this year, we came across the following news report which presents the findings of child psychotherapist Julie Lynn Evans:

Are smartphones making our children mentally ill?

The story describes her concern that unfetter access to websites, especially due to the use of smartphones, may be behind a significant growth in mental health issues that she and her colleagues have observed in the past few years.

It’s well worth a read.

Even more so, since as well as discussing the issues, it also contains practical advice on how to potentially avoid them.
