It seems we're always hearing how terrible social media is for our kids from the parents.
But now we have undeniable evidence that some teenagers dislike tweets, fb messages, etc. just as much as the adults!
Well, sort of.
"I used to write more, before I got addicted to technology. I was going through my old journals from elementary school, pre-cell phone, and saw that I wrote so many short stories and poems. The excuse I tell myself is that I don't have time, but that isn't true. I do have time, but I am wasting it reading tweets and looking at Willow Smith's Instagram. The amount of time that I spend on my phone scares me. The amount of time I see other people on their phones makes me realize that what I'm doing isn't important and I shouldn't be wasting my time. Getting invested in other people's relationships just makes you feel bad about yourself and maybe feeling bad feels good sometimes."
If it is any comfort, Maude, you're definitely NOT alone.
We all have this problem where we spend too much time on Facebook when we really should be doing our work.
But the good news is that there is a way to fight this - we know there is.
Unfortunately we just haven't found out how we can actually do this.
Definitely give us a call if you figure it out!
