    Youngsters who use smartphones for extended time likely to be mentally fragile - psychologist

    San Diego State University psychology professor , Jean Twenge , sees smartphones and social media as raising an unhappy, compliant “ iGen . ”
    Twenge noted that the iGen is the generation born in 1995 and later , and they ’ re the first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone .
    “ They spend a lot more time online, on social media and playing games, and they spend less time on non -screen activities like reading books , sleeping or seeing their friends in face- to - face interactions , ” Twenge explained .
    “ Those children are growing up more slowly . By the age of 18 , they are less likely to have a driver ’ s licence, to work in a paying job , to go out on dates, to drink alcohol or to go out without their parents , compared to teens in previous generations .
