Attention all teen smartphone users, imagine a life without a smartphone; no apps, no games, no
nternet, and no communication with your friends. Smartphones have been a massive impact on teens and the use of smartphones has been rapidly increasing amongst teens. A recent study shows that about 78 percent of teens own a cell phone and 47 percent of those teens have a smartphone, these numbers are only increasing as more and more teens are craving and begging for a smartphone (citation)
. People can look at this as a positive thing, with all these teens having a smartphone that teaches them responsibility and learning skills. On the other hand some people may disagree with that and argue that smartphones are changing the way teens live their normal lives and causing problematic issues with teens.
Your claim comes across a little weak because you are going back and forth. This is your opportunity to explicitly state where you are coming from in this paper. You could have worked a little better with this: “Smart phones are changing teens lives, oftentimes causing unnecessary problems.” See what I’m saying :)
The way teens are living is becoming worse ning due to the use of smartphones. Teens are now becoming sleep deprived or just simply u nable to pay attention at all. Some people may be questioning why this is happening or how teens have become to be this way. In the article
“Smartphone ‘Addiction’ May Affect Adolescent Development,” the author, Deborah Brauser, indicates that teens who are very high users of smartphones develop serious problematic
behaviors. These behaviors include “somatic symptoms, attentional deficits, and aggression”
(Brauser). The problem that really draws the most attention to people is the attentional deficits.
Teens all over the world have attentional deficits due to the high use of smartphones
