專家:給孩子手機堪比毒品
Giving your child a smartphone is like giving them a gram of cocaine, says top addiction expert

手機如今成為很多孩子的必備品,也被很多人視為干擾孩子正常生活的"新毒品"。英國一位專家警告說,給孩子一部手機堪比給他們一克可卡因。

Giving your child a smartphone is like "giving them a gram of cocaine", a top addiction therapist has warned.

一位頂級的成癮治療師警告說,給孩子一部智慧手機就好像"給他們一克可卡因"。

Time spent messaging friends on Snapchat and Instagram can be just as dangerously addictive for teenagers as drugs and alcohol, and should be treated as such, school leaders and teachers were told at an education conference in London.

在倫敦一次教育會議上,學校領導和教師們被告知,在Snapchat和Instagram上花時間給朋友們發消息對青少年來說很上癮,這種上癮的危險性可能和毒品及酒精類似,應被同樣對待。

Speaking alongside experts in technology addiction and adolescent development, Harley Street rehab clinic specialist Mandy Saligari said screen time was too often overlooked as a potential vehicle for addiction in young people.

在與技術上癮和青少年發展的專家一起交談時,哈利街戒癮診所的專家曼迪-薩利嘉裡說,螢幕時間也是讓年輕人上癮的潛在媒介,但常被人們忽視。

"I always say to people, when you're giving your kid a tablet or a phone, you're really giving them a bottle of wine or a gram of coke," she said.

她說:"我經常對人們說,當你給孩子平板電腦或手機時,其實你是給了他們一瓶酒或者一克可卡因。"

"Why do we pay so much less attention to those things than we do to drugs and alcohol when they work on the same brain impulses?"

"這能帶來和毒品與酒精一樣的大腦刺激,但為什麼和毒品及酒精相比,我們對此卻如此忽略呢?"

Her comments follow news that children as young as 13 are being treated for digital technology – with a third of British children aged 12-15 admitting they do not have a good balance between screen time and other activities.

此前有新聞稱,接受數位技術上癮治療的孩子年齡低至13歲。英國12到15歲的孩子中有三分之一承認他們沒有在螢幕時間和其他活動之間保持良好平衡。

"When people tend to look at addiction, their eyes tend to be on the substance or thing – but really it's a pattern of behavior that can manifest itself in a number of different ways," Ms Saligari said, naming food obsessions, self-harm and sexting as examples.

薩利嘉裡女士拿食物上癮、自我傷害和色情短信舉例說:"當人們關注上癮時,總是把焦點放在實質性的事物上面,但其實這是一種行為模式,可以以不同的方式表現出來。"
