Digital technology plays an important role in our daily life. It’s important to know the safe and healthy ways to use digital technology.

Too much time online or misuse of digital technology can affect you in some of the same ways that abusing drugs or alcohol do. This is why children and youth may have trouble with some areas of their social or emotional development.

“We have become consumed by technology. The amount of time I waste on social media is disgusting. It is an “unstated” rule for my generation to have social media, everyone has it. With every post I see my life is affected. Whether we realize it or not, the impact of a single image is tremendous”.

– Anonymous youth, age 16
