Can youths get along without mobiles?

A study commissioned by King’s College, London shows that nearly one-quarter of youths are so dependent on their mobile phones that use of the mobile has become a habit.

Psychiatrists who carried out the study say the youths start panicking and get upset when they don’t have continuous access.

It was also stated that youths are incapable of controlling the amount of time they spend looking at their screen. They warned that this situation could have a detrimental effect on the youths’ mental health.

The research analysed 41 different studies involving some 42,000 persons. It resulted that 23% had this mobile habit, and its use was impacting badly on other activities.
