In recent years, smartphones have become an increasingly popular item not only among adults but among the youth as well. With a thorough review of literature it has become apparent that this is a large issue among our youth population. There are a variety of different features a smartphone has and they are being implemented into everyday life with individuals spending hours on them each day. With this comes a lot of responsibility and there seems to be a lack of education for our student population. Additionally, the research has shown that increased smartphone use negatively impacts mental health, physical health, academic success, and family and peer relationships. Schools counselors have a responsibility facilitate discussions among students and parents; as well as educate students on appropriate and responsible cellphone use.
