IN ITALY CHILDREN WOULD BE TREATED AFTER SMARTPHONE ADDICTION
The Italian authorities have decided that in order to save children from their smartphone addiction, they will be sent to rehabilitation centers with the permission of their parents.
According to experts, fears of missing a mobile phone are prone to 8 in 10 teenagers in Italy. Kids are terribly afraid of losing their smartphone, internet and checking their phones about 75 times a day. 62% of teens communicate online at night, which negatively affects their well-being.
The Ministry of Health, the Police, the Committee on Children and Youth will look for dependent children in Italy. The rehabilitation will be carried out at the expense of public funds. According to psychologists, the level of stress in smartphone addiction can be compared with stress when visiting a dentist or on their wedding day.
