Social media is giving children mentality of three-year-olds, warns researcher

Social media is having an adverse effect on the mental and emotional maturity of children, a leading neuroscientist has warned, leaving them with the behavioral habits of three-year-olds.

Baroness Susan Greenfield, former director of the royal institution of Great Britain, told the daily telegraph that social media and video games have left children unable to communicate with one another and think for themselves, as they are constantly looking for something to distract them.
