Social Media Can Be A Major Factor in Teenage Depression

Facebook is Damaging Your Child’s Mental Health

When my husband and I first got married I went to a softball game of his. I was sitting in the stands, because I was about 7 months pregnant. I overheard a mother say to somebody, “what did parents do without technology.” I look over and I see every single one of the children staring down at an electronic. A couple of kids had cell-phones, a few children had a tablet and one kid had ear buds in his ears listening to music. I was mesmerized by this scene.


I looked around at the beautiful park we were sitting in. The sun was shinning, there was a play structure only a couple of feet away, there were baseball and soccer fields. This place was a child’s dream, but instead they were swiping their fingers on their electronics and their mother was just smiling at how funny it was that her kids were playing on technology. “What did parents do without technology” has forever been burned into my brain.  When she said that, I thought, “kids played in the mud, got dirty, used their imaginations, learned teamwork and learned how to entertain themselves.”
