SCEGGS DARLINGHURST

In This Together

Dear Parents

I have seen many changes in society in the 22 years I have been Head of SCEGGS. One of the biggest, most pervasive, has been the invention of the Smartphone. In the following article, Clinical Psychologist, Danielle Einstein, explores some of the consequences of our increasing dependence on a smartphone, and describes how this can lead to increased anxiety in adults and children. It gives some interesting context and background which I think will be helpful for all parents. You might learn something for yourself or your partner too!
