Why tweens and teens need a vacation from technology
from By: Corinne Garcia
Technology is fully ingrained in our busy lives, and even more so in the lives of tweens and teens. Think about it: If it weren't for time spent in the classroom, students in the tween and teen years could easily fill the day without looking up from their handheld devices. They text instead of talk, keep up with friends through Instagram and SnapChat, and do most of their schoolwork in front of a computer. And then there's the entertainment: a series on Netflix, video games and streaming music.
