This article gives a very interesting and detailed account of how Americans and citizens of other countries are always tied down to their phones, constantly looking, touching, and swiping their way across their phone screen spending upwards of 12 hours a day on their phones! While reading the text, starting off with various examples and statistics, the article shifts towards solutions and texts as the reader progresses, such as an experiment with various ages of children given electronic devices. They were then measured by the amount of time that each child managed to avoid the devices. They were also measured by the amount of time that they spent on the device and were sorted by age group. The article ends with the common solution. Parents should limit the amount of time that their kids spend on their devices.

For this text, the author relates the impact of smartphones on childrens social lives. The author argues that smartphones could negatively impact the way that children interact with each other. This article brings up some important points. Many individuals say more aggressive things online, and across social media, then they would actually say to another person in real life. This could negatively affect the way that kids speak to each other — more aggressive.

The study gave a chart that could be used to relate the need to belong with the smartphone addiction.
