Transcript of Are YOU Addicted?

Are YOU addicted?
How do I know if I'm addicted?
Here are some
questions from a
how you might do...

I would feel uncomfortable without constant access to information through my smartphone.
If I did not have a data signal or could not connect to Wi-Fi, then I would constantly check to see if I had a signal or could find a Wi-Fi network.
If I could not use my smartphone, I would be afraid of getting stranded somewhere.
I would feel anxious because I could not instantly communicate with my family and/or friends.
I would feel awkward because I could not check my notifications for updates from my connections and online networks.
WHY do we become addicted?
FIRST: There are people who are TRYING to get you to be "hooked" ...
SECOND: There are no "stopping cues".
Third: It builds an addiction to the dopamine "fix" that you get when you use it.
YIKES! so many reasons we are addicted.

How is this addiction effecting our youth? Is it really that big of deal?
Increase in Mental Health issues like: depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, as well as increased feelings of isolation. It's true...look at the stats:
There is a HUGE increase in feelings of loneliness and our phones are the reason...
These are REAL TEENS at an
When you Phub.....
This is what you look like to the people you care about most, and the ones who care about you the most too.
To help curb your phone addiction we have a CONTEST that will be happening for the ENITRE MONTH of APRIL
Here are the details:

Turn in your phone to your 1st period teacher and pick it up at the end of the day.
Every day that you turn it in, you will be entered in a drawing.
There will be weekly drawings and drawings for BIG PRIZES at the end of the month.
The contest will start AFTER Spring Break and run through the month of April.

Let's PUT DOWN our devices and LOOK UP in APRIL!!
SLEEP Zzzzzzzzzzzz....
When you use a device at night, the "blue light" enters your eyes and inhibits the release of melatonin which stops you from feeling tired.
What happens without the right amount of sleep?
Relative risk of getting less than seven hours of sleep on most nights based on screen (black bars) and nonscreen (gray bars) activity.
Percentage of teens who get less than seven hours of sleep on most nights.
Sleep experts say that teens should get nine hours of sleep a night. A teen who is getting less than seven hours a night is significantly "sleep deprived"
And what is the lack of sleep doing to our teens?
These people are getting enough sleep
2010 is when smartphones were integrated into our daily lives
Wait, I don't want to be depressed,
I want to be HAPPY!
What is the result of phubbing and not taking care of our relationships?
Feelings of isolation
Lack of social skills
In fact in a 2017 SHARP survey of Davis School District students, 51% of students who reported feeling sad or hopeless for 2 weeks or more reported they would talk to no one about their feelings.
What are we going to do about it?
Rate of 10th graders that have a job
Depressive symptoms in 10th graders
Smartphone adoption
8th 10th and 12th graders who report they often feel left out or lonely.
Activities that
are negatively correlated.
Activities that are positively correlated.
Here are some great ideas...
Put yourself on a tech. "Diet"
Put off getting kids a "smart" phone as long as possible. "Dumb" phones are good for communicating without access to apps and the internet.
Once they have a smartphone, LIMIT the amount of time they are on their device. Sporadic use is unlikely to be harmful. In fact research shows that using a device for 2 hours or LESS does not significantly impact mental health.
Use apps to monitor and limit what is available.
Don't let kids have phones/devices in their rooms throughout the night. Get them an alarm clock!

Use helpful apps...like SCREEN TIME and OUR PACT
These are some apps that are GOOD!
Then there are THESE:
Girls vs. Boys
Pornography Addiction

Is Cyberbullying WORSE?
Girls vs. Boys
Technology is effecting our girls and boys differently.
The biggest reason is because of WHAT they are doing on-line.
Video Games
Social Media
YES....but why?
Anonymity emboldens bullies to say things they wouldn't in person...they cower behind user names and fake profiles from miles away constantly berating and abusing.
Teens who are cyber-bullied often say there is no way to get away from their tormentors. It makes it more difficult to move on. Also it doesn't disappears but is permanently there unless someone takes inconvenient measures to make it go away.
UGH, Sexting
Youth feel pressured and don't dare say no.
It is a crime and kids can and do get charged.
Predators are "cat-fishing" kids and then blackmailing them.
"invisible" apps allow for hiding things from adults.

Good Apps vs. Bad Apps
Some of the Ways Technology Addiction is Effecting Our Youth:
Physical Effects
These people are not getting enough sleep
Mental/Emotional Effects
Social/Relational Effects
Have you ever been Phubbed?
Another physical effect...
