The Necessity of Keeping an Eye on Juveniles’ Phones
Although there isn’t a recognized “smartphone addiction” diagnosis, it’s natural for parents to wonder if a teen’s apparent obsession with a smartphone qualifies as addictive behavior. After all, it can be incredibly frustrating to attempt to hold a conversation with someone when they can’t peel their eyes away from their phone.
2. School Bullying
School bullying has always been a social hotspots which sometimes makes tragedy eventually for neglect. “Better Days”, a Chinese film that puts spotlight on school bullying, continued to dominate Chinese mainland box office. It revealed how helpless for a teenager undergoing school bullying which simultaneously draws more public attention to it.
Besides, according to a national juvenile internet usage report released last year, 30.3 percent of the juvenile internet users have encountered illegal or unhealthy information during their internet surfing. New Era Underage Female and Family Internet Literacy provides more shocking data: 29.3 percent of girls have been harassed online.
In the era of the internet, it is difficult for the parents to establish an information firewall when children browse the internet using their smartphones on their own in their bedrooms. Youngsters today are therefore more vulnerable to unhealthy information, internet addiction, internet bullying, sexual predators and disclosure of their personal information.
