Kids spend 9 hours a day on social media. But just ONE hour a day can bum kids out! That’s from the UK’s Institute of Labor Economics. Researchers looked at data on tweens and teens from more than 40-thousand households over a 4-year span. The result: Just an hour a day on social media made kids more likely to feel dissatisfied in ALL areas of their lives, except for friendships. The top 3 reasons kids felt worse: Cyber-bullying, comparing themselves to others, and because social media invaded other activities that could benefit their psychological health, like exercising or spending quality time with family and friends.
