Smartphone addiction in teenagers

In this day and age, it is hard not to rely on technology and all the conveniences it offers. Smartphones have simplified our lives in various ways. Teenagers, these days, like to use latest gadgets and keeping a latest model of smartphones is status symbol for many. But sometimes things get out of control when a kid’s parents don’t have all the money to buy all the expensive things, other kids are using. In that case either kids develop major depression in absence of proper guidance or they turn to illegal activities.

Smartphone addiction

One such case, a 13 year old Gujarati girl entered into prostitution, a year ago, in order to purchase high end gadgets. Much to the shock of her mother and counsellor, a 13-year-old told them that she had taken to prostitution because of her aspiration to use high-end gadgets and mobile phones. The mother, who runs a grocery shop in Subhanpura, didn’t have any clue of her daughter’s act till the girl spilled the beans earlier this week. “the girl told her mother about her act when she thought that she had become pregnant. Her mother was shocked when she learnt that her daughter had turned to prostitution” said a counsellor of 181 abhayam service.

The girl was born in Anand and adopted by her parents as an infant. Her father died three years ago which led her mother to run a grocery store in Subhanpura and that created a rift between their relationship as they couldn’t spend much time together. Mother working all day long left the girl with a vacant house which she used for prostitution. She was using a secret secondary phone to fix up her clients.

During the counselling session, the teenager said she was strapped for money and unable to buy electronic gadgets that her friends used. She used the vacant available house before her mother returned. “her erratic behaviour had earlier forced her mother to send her to Anand. She lived with her maternal uncle briefly. She was sent back after she threatened to commit suicide if they kept her at Anand any longer,” the counsellor added.
