As a high school student, I understand how hard it is to put down the cellphone, with Internet, email, social media, music and games available on smartphones.
The average teen spends seven-and-a-half hours a day using electronic devices smartphone, computer, television. At a restaurant, I saw a 14-year-old girl on her phone the whole time: before the food came, after it came even while she ate!
Parents need to convince their teens that there is more to life than technology. They need to set limits on the amount of technology their teens can use.
