Social Media Harm

Updated: Mar 29, 2023

Social media has become an integral part of our daily lives, especially for children and teenagers. While it can be a powerful tool for communication, self-expression, and socialization, it also poses significant risks to the physical and mental health of young people.

Studies have shown that excessive use of social media can lead to a range of health problems, including poor sleep quality, increased risk of obesity, and decreased physical activity. In addition, social media use has been linked to a range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. The constant comparison to others' highlight reels, the potential for cyberbullying, and the curated perfection of social media can create unrealistic expectations and negatively impact a young person's self-image.


It is important for parents, caregivers, and educators to be aware of these risks and to encourage healthy social media use among children and teens. By promoting balance, setting boundaries, and modeling healthy behavior, we can help protect young people's physical and mental health in the digital age.
