SMS and Teens
Reports confirm what many parents have to say―most teens lose a lot of sleep because of the constant texting they are sending their buddies. Since more and more companies are offering free SMSs as part of the package, teens are taking full advantage of the scheme and landing up grumpy and not fully awake in school and college. Students feel that it is the easiest and most economical way to do a number of things, including clearing of doubts.
It’s not just lack of sleep that worries parents. Teenagers seem to be living in the world of texting, totally oblivious of the parents sitting in the same room or trying to converse with them. Psychologists too say that it is an unhealthy trend since lack of sleep can make a person feel stressed out and also depressed. Constant use of mobile phones can cause frequent headaches and totally blur concentration power. Perhaps this message should get sent as an SMS for teenagers to become aware of the hazards!
