Ruining our younger generation So many children that had access to smartphones as teens are completely addicted as adults. Addicted to the attention from the opossite sex. Scrolling all day long. They somehow stop worrying about the life around them and when confronted will go as far as hiding in the bathroom. Starting new accounts and blocking everyone who knows them. Now the teens since 2012 have been being bullied online to the point of suicide. I'm a mother of three and do not allow my 16 year old on social media. Because my youngest child's father is 27 and ignores his whole family to hide and scroll fb search for woman on Facebook. He himself needs validation from ppl online to feel good about himself. Hurting others doesn't matter. So he hides it starts new accounts blocking the very reason we are supposed to have fb to connect with people like old friends, Family, Etc. Ever since I said about it being a problem when he was ignoreing everyone to sit on his phone. Now he hides and sneaks. I don't want any of my children ending up like him. He's never even posted a pic of his family.
