Screen Addiction and Anxiety


*Picture taken from Google Images

The video below is Dr. Nickolas Kadaras talking about his work “Glow Kids.” He has a webpage you can visit as well to see more statistics not he effects of cell phones, social media, and video games on our kids.

Screen use is highly correlated with anxiety as is social media use. It is important to look at how your kids use technology and whether it might cause or at least exacerbate their anxiety symptoms. This week I am linking the video, but next week I will post a follow up that includes the statistics and research on how these screens affect our kids.
