Often, parents tell us they feel technology is taking over their our teens lives, but they don 't know when enough is enough, or what they can do to control it. Since there is no perfect answer or specific line to draw, I suggest parents engage in one of the core principles and be intentional. If our teens, or your teens are lacking in different areas such as school performance, energy, grades, or reading, hearing, or listening skills then it 's time to put a limit on these computers. In an article, Teensand the Internet: How Much is Too Much?, by Stephanies Newman, she includes a statement saying in addition to a decline in any school related issue; absenteeism, complaints of being tired during classes, or decreasing in grade performance,
“War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.” That is the Party’s slogan. The Party has brainwashed their citizens to believe that they should not feel anything except hate, do anything except for their jobs, and support Big Brother. Big Brother is teaching the small rebels to go against the one thing they should love the most, their parents, and go with Big Brother. In Wall-E they are only communicating through technology, and they only teach the kids the alphabet by ads!
I think that technology and the internet can and have brought people together. The reason that i say that is because if you are homeschooled, than you can stay connected with your old friends. But if you get cut off from the internet and stuff, and you canot get to talk to anyone at all, than you will be lonely and not have anyone to talk to. The internet has helped to get people help fast. It helps people who want to learn new things, and it helps people who want to share what they have learned.
Modern technology is a rapidly increasing danger to the ever-changing minds of today’s younger generations. This paper explains how Tmental health is being detrimentally affected by the constantly growing accessibility of social media and other similar such technologies detrimentally affects mental health. Social media is then analyzed as an outlet for narcissistic tendencies and how those tendencies affect adolescents and their mental health. Behavior and social skills are also evaluated in how they are negatively impacted by such technology as well.

Less Screen Time Makes for a Better Teen “Today, children and teenagers spend more than seven and a half hours a day using smartphones, computers, televisions and other electronic screens.” (Jones). Too much screen time is having an adverse effect on teens’ everyday lives. Since they have to sit down and watch TV or sit down to play video games they are not getting enough daily activity. Also spending time on devices instead of homework is bringing their grades down.
For most Americans, today’s access to technology has never been more essential in everyday life. From attending college, finding jobs, to creating relationships across the world, the need for technological interaction has become a necessity of everyday life. While technology overall is seen as a positive force for change, what negative effects do technology and social media have on developing teenagers? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), distracted teenagers hold the highest share of distraction-related fatal car accidents. The CDC states, “42% of high school students who drove in the past 30 days reported sending a text or email while driving” (CDC, 2013).
Behavioral changes from one generation to the next naturally occur little by little. Nonetheless, changes in adolescent behavior from the millennial generation triumphing it have been substantial and revolutionary. Today’s teens have never witnessed a world without internet. The majority of them possess smartphones and waste several hours each week on social media. 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.
Technology has been expeditiously changing over previous generations. Those born between 1946 - 1964 are classified as Baby Boomers, and from 1995 - 2012 are catergorised as Generation Z. Over the years, youths become more connected to their mobile phones and given up and lost real connections and relationships? The behaviour standards and the influence from Baby Boomers has significantly altered towards the youths over the past decades. Generation Z has an overall population of 82 million worldwide, with the oldest turning 23 and the youngest turning 6 (Robinson, 2018). As part of the research, Shane Lynch was interviewed from the Generation Baby Boomers.
Technology has become a part of our everyday life in the digital age. This not only applies to adults but also the youth. Children thirteen years-old and younger should not have a smartphone because it decreases the development of human characteristics and they are not old enough to handle the responsibility. In recent years, technology has gained a strong presence when it comes to parenting. When parents want a child to sit and behave or want them to learn early on they will pass their child a phone or tablet.
