DoNow: Too Much Screen-time?

texting“Three-quarters of North American teenagers either own or have access to a smartphone. Too much screen-time has been linked to sleep disruption, loneliness, anxiety, depression and even an increased risk of suicide.”

On yesterday’s version of CBC’s The Sunday Edition, the issue of too much screen-time was addressed by the host Michael Enright and his two guests, Jean Twenge and Clive Thompson. Both guests argue as to the negative consequences related to our smartphone use.

Curiously, the episode did not feature youth. Perhaps this isn’t a surprise, but your voice is important.

Have a listen and read and then respond to Michael via the Sunday Edition’s feedback page. In a concise, well-crafted, and well thought out manner, offer your insight and your argument.
