But while numerous parents may feel allayed about their teens’ seeming uninterested in drinking, driving and dating, they could perhaps be overlooking the effects that continuous internet access has on their teens’ mental well-being. In the article “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?”, Jean M. Twenge compares iGen to previous generations. The smartphone and social media define “iGen”, the generation born between 1995 to 2012. Twenge accuses smartphones for sleep deprivation, anti-socialization, courtship, sexual activities, and poor mental health. The omnipresence of the smartphone affects adolescents in every section of the United States, regardless of social class and ethnic background.
Twenge´s description of the statistically proven skyrocketed depression rate is accurate and opinions on it are justified. But when she says that iPhones make us all unhappy, I think twice. If anything these cell phones are time consumers and a fun waste of time for us, they don 't make us unhappy, it 's the things that occur using the iPhone that makes us unhappy and that 's by choice. Later in the article, she states that high schoolers now don 't ever go out with friends and stay home all the time. This is an ignorant statement.
In Nicholas Carr’s article, “How Smartphones Hijack Our Minds” (November 10, 2017) Carr discusses the implications of allowing our smartphones to have such a huge effect on our lives. Smartphones serve many purposes, and have created massive societal effects throughout the world despite being introduced roughly only two decades ago. One can converse with anyone in the world at any given moment, they can watch any television show they want, and they can receive alerts so they no longer have to put effort into remembering things themselves. However, with so much control over people’s own lives, one begins to wonder about the negative consequences of the smartphones themselves. Carr brings up the question of how our minds can be negatively affected by this when he asks, “So what happens to our minds when we allow a single tool such dominion over our own perception and cognition?” While Carr is aware that the smartphone serves a countless number of useful purposes and tasks, he believes we should think deeper about the lesser known effects of our smartphones which people so easily allow to take over their lives.
Kristin Lewis, the author of "Your Phone Could Ruin Your Life", believes that smartphones do more harm than good. First off, one piece of evidence is that the author writes "58% of pedestrian deaths are kids under 19. Experts believe these tragedies are mainly due to digital distraction." This means that when crossing streets many people are looking at their phones and not checking the road like they should. Also, another piece of evidence is in the article the author said, "80% of teenagers sleep with their phone nearby."
Response to “Addicted to Phone” Mobile phones, working as a multifunctional electronic device, can be seen everywhere in daily lives. In ‘Addicted to Phone’, Birdwell (2007) explains the negative effects that are generated by cell phone addiction. He states that people in modern society are excessively relying on cell phones and would feel depressed or anxious when leaving cell phones off; in other words, phones are intruding users’ life. Although indicating the cell phone misuse is burdensome on account of regular use, people are intended to lose a relationship or a job due to cellular phones. From my perspective, I am strongly in agreement with Birdwell’s idea that addiction to mobile phones are causing a great deal of trouble and this
