Heard something on the radio this morning, on the news portion.
It said that hyper texting teens are more at risk for certain things. It provided statistics that stated that teenagers who text 120 times or more per day were more likely to have sex, do drugs, fight and get drunk. Here's the article.
First, I have to wonder why the study was only done on teens in Cleveland. It seems like an unreasonable and inacurate way to conduct a study. If you are going to study teens and texting, wouldn't you want to use a wider study group? Maybe pick 2 schools from major cities in several widespread countries? Cuz I'd be willing to bet that it would show a huge difference in findings if they tested teens from all over the world, as opposed to just some in Cleveland.
Second... what impact does texting have on a slightly older population? I say slightly older, but really I mean people my age or older (hey, I can't help it if I FEEL like a teen still). Are we more promiscuous? Do we partake in riskier activities just because we text? Or are our brains developed enough to know better?
I felt like I had all these points to talk about with this article, but these are the main two. Got any to add in?
