Children With Parents Who Are Addicted To Their Cell Phones Affect Children's Development

Be honest. How often do you scroll through social media, watch a cute video, read an article, check the weather, play games, or google something interesting? How often do you scroll just standing in line, because you are bored or you just do it out of habit?

Technology is everywhere. It has changed our world and it is here to stay. Endless information is available at our fingertips. We practically don’t even have to leave our house anymore if we don’t want to. We can take care of anything on our cellphone.


What are your thoughts on this?

On average I clock 6 hours a day and I've picked up my phone 166 times over the last 2 days. Most of that time is spent listening to Spotify or watching YouTube. I tend to scroll when I get bored but a lot it feels like I'm falling into a routine.

My life revolves around the technology I own. I use my phone very often when I'm out in public and not spending time with friends, and sometimes I talk to this LGBT+ discord group I'm a part of. Throughout the day, this is just guessing, I scroll on my phone when I'm bored at least 3 hours worth of the day, on Discord for about 1-2 hours a day, and when I'm not on my phone I'll be on my computer or Xbox, at least 4 hours each. If I delete discord or burn my Xbox, I might start to have plenty of time for guitar....

Everyday is about 6-8 hours on my phone and between 60-200 pickups. Even though I do these things, distancing away from my device for at least 30 minutes to an hour is usually what I do. A phone is great for many things, but it shouldn't take away from getting a breath of fresh air.

I usually pick up my phone like every 15 or 20 minutes, so i pick up the phone between 50-300 times a day. I think it's too much. The times I don't use my phone, I usually be playing video games or doing homework. A phone is very useful but at the same time it's not, we can spend too many time on it and we won't do the things we have to do.

Technically this is correct but it doesn't mean we have to stay on our phones all the time

i use my phone about 6-7 hours a day

right there are a lot of things that does not require our phones but, i would usually say using the phones are a little thing you can do on the side but clearly its more than just a thing to do one the side.

I'd say about 5 or less hours, nowadays, is how much time I spend on my phone. I have others things to keep me occupied at times like playing soccer with my brothers, working and school.

Sometimes we do end up spending more time on our phones than we intended to. And I like that last sentence you wrote, it really is true.

To be honest I be on phone most of the day except when i go play some soccer or do some exercise.

And sometimes I pick up my phone for no reason but I guess I could agree with him technology id advancing in so many ways. It can help us or affect us. Either way it's there.

I'm on the phone at an estimate 3 hours per day, there are days I might be on it more. During the day I work, which doesn't give me time to be on it. I do tend to pick it up a lot, to check on time, change the song, or google stuff. technology is getting more advanced as the days go by. it has it's pros and its cons.

I use my phone everyday except when i go outside and play soccer.

I open social media about every 30 mins because im not really on it as much as i was before.

technology is advancing and it will be easier to do many things in the future.

Maybe an hour. I will sometimes play solitaire or look up some stuff for school, but I’m mostly on my computer from about 7:15 am 2:30 pm nonstop and then work on schoolwork, zoom calls with my TI or music instructor on and off til about 8 pm or somewhere close to that. I think that it's good to be outside and I love to and be one with nature (when it's not cold) and it also isn’t very good to be looking at a screen for hours a day. Kinda wish I was back out west where it was warm, neighbors a mile away, and had bad signal. I think life was better back in the day. Well, around flip phone times lol

I feel like I spend 4-5 hours on my phone I'm more active than sitting down looking at a screen, besides I like looking at and the world in person and not on a screen

I use my cellphone all the time the only time I am not glued to it is when i'm at work or someone is talking to me. I use my phone on average for about 8 hours and 54 mins daily which is not great. I use technology all the time in my daily life.

I use my phone 5-7 hours a day, with around 60 unlocks a day. A lot of my life revolves around technology, whether I'm learning something, or playing online with my friends. I tend to use my home computer more than my phone when I'm not doing school work.
