LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — When it comes to students, dependency on technology is something to watch out for. The CDC says anxiety and depression has increased in kids and teens over time, and experts say there is a connection.
Kids spend around 7 and a half hours on their phones every day, according to CDC. Research from a San Diego State University professor said kids who spend more than five hours a day online are more likely to have at least one suicide risk factor, such as depression.
But Clark County School District parents can help their children right from their own phones.
Dr. Kevin Skinner, a licensed marriage and family therapist, is one of the faces of Parent Guidance, a free online resource for CCSD parents.
