Young Kids are Addicted to Social Media and Games but Are Not Gaining Satisfaction From It 12/21/16 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A British study is out that is reporting that kids that spend more time online chatting on social media feel reduced satisfaction about parts of their life, their real life, not their online fake life. A New York Post article out discussed how violent kids are becoming over video games when mommy tries to take them away and that internet addiction is harder to kick than drugs. So if you’ve got young kids that are already addicted to the web, spend all their time online on social pages, you’re gonna have a lot of unhappy twenty-somethings that are not gonna enjoy life very much. Great time for these articles to come out right here at Christmas as kids will receive lots of presents that they’ll be tired of in a day. Technology, toys, money, none of it makes us truly happy and it seems a lot of kids are learning that the hard way by having a less happy life. Turn of the screens kids, go outside and play. You may find out it’s more fun than the fake world online. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
