Socialized or Isolated the lasting effect of social technology in the lives of children

Excessive technology use, in the lives of children, encourages an attitude of isolation and a need for constant entertainment
"Children used to get bullied at school. Now they go home, and that's where the problem starts - because they sit on their phones all night, thinking about who's 'liked' a photo of them, who hates them, who loves them. They don't know what's real and what's not, editing their lives constantly to fit other people's views." - Jessie J
Social media, a commonplace outlet of technology, has come to blur the lines between being socialized and in fact becoming distanced
technology quickly piles up and becomes DAMAGING
PARENTS SHOULD ENCOURAGE DISCOVERY AND ENRICHMENT THROUGH PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEERS AND FAMILY, rather than relying heavily on technology
