Clinical Report—The Impact of Social Media on Children, Adolescents, and Families
I agree with the article “The Impact of Social Media on Children, Adolescents, and Families” by Gwenn Schurgin O’Keeffe and Kathleen Clarke-Pearson. Every point that it mention it great to discuss about it because it affect everyone in the house or in the family member. Social media has it positive, and negative affect on children and youth. but as a adult we have to check for what they using the social media because if children and youth use for the wrong ideas, they can get hurt physical and mental. Some of the cause that mention in the article is cyberbullying, privacy issues, sexting, and more problem. So it always good to see how the lives of our children, have that one on one and spend time with them because thats one issues that social media have taking way from us human. we spend more time in the internet and less in person. Even when we at home we reach out by a text or using whatup App. Beside of having a negative affect their great opportunity go using some social media for kids and youth. Now we can reach out our classmate or teacher to get help with homework or projects. Also, build new friendship with other young people that love the same topic just as graphic design or a game just as call of duty.

With technology constantly on the rise, it’s hard not to notice that Facebook is the number one social media site, outdoing Twitter and Instagram. Personally, I am not that absorbed in social media, because many bad circumstances occur. For instance, Person A is chatting up with Person Z for a rendezvous via Facebook, only for the latter to actually be a serial killer. I know all it takes is caution, but everyone these days would rather stare at their smartphones, instead of the world around them.
That’s very true about paying more attention to smartphones vs the world. It’s something that is getting more and more normalized.
