Is easy access to internet via smartphones making children ill?


Posted on

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.
