This Is Why You Should Never Let Your Kid Sleep with a Phone Charger on Their Bed

By Mustafa Gatollari

You don't need a sociologist to tell you that there are a bunch of people who are clearly addicted to their smartphones ambling around like mindless zombies constantly updating their social media feeds or searching for an outlet or charger to juice up their device. In fact, many of us sleep with a cell phone charger right next to our bed, and some of us actually bring our chargers into the bed with us.

And even though I'm fully aware of this fact, I can't help but catch myself reaching for my phone and opening up a social media app despite recently closing it minutes earlier, just out of sheer habit.

I'm not going to sit here and say that smartphones are evil, they're amazingly revolutionary devices. But we are dependent on them: Our phone is usually the first thing we see when wake up in the morning and the last thing we look at before we go to bed.
