Tucker Carlson called on Congress to ban smartphones for children during his show Thursday night.
“It’s not surprising, then, rates of mental illness and suicide among teens began to surge right around 2012. That’s just as smartphones and social media became universal. You probably didn’t need a study to know all of this. If you are a parent, it’s obvious. Smartphone use makes your kids sadder, slower and more isolated and, over time, can kill them,” Carlson said.
“The question is what are we going to do about it?” Carlson asked. “Most parents will do nothing. Not because they don’t want what’s best for their kids; they do, but because in real life it’s just too difficult. Try taking an iPhone away from a seventh-grader. You learn a lot about what addiction means. It’s like trying to get a junkie into rehab. You cannot do it alone.”
