      In recent years, the evidence suggesting that smartphones negatively impact children’s mental health has steadily increased. Feelings of loneliness and sadness started to escalate over a decade ago, coinciding with the widespread adoption of smartphones and, subsequently, social media. The time teenagers spend engaging in face-to-face social interactions has decreased in tandem with this trend, as has their total sleep duration. Academic research corroborates these observations, with numerous studies indicating a correlation between the amount of time adolescents, particularly girls, spend on smartphones and their likelihood of experiencing depression or having low self-esteem.
