New Research on How Social Media Affects Adolescent Brains is a Sad Confirmation and Serious Call-out


New Research on How Social Media Affects Adolescent Brains Is a Sad Confirmation and Serious Call-out


The research on social media and how the PARTS OF THE BRAIN react to it is still in the early stages. While these studies reflect an effort toward better understanding the effects of social media on different parts of the brain, there’s still a lot of progress to be made. https://online.king.edu/news/psychology-of-social-media/

Our society’s reality is that nearly 95 percent of teens in the U.S. have access to a smartphone and almost 75 percent of teens have at least one social media account, exposing teens to both health risks and benefits. These  platforms are open ended ways to connect with peers, information and resources but also run the risk of cyber bullying and other hyped up digital aggression.

Just think, it has been only about 20 years since the internet revolution began invading so many economic, social, personal and psychological levels. Because it is so recent, there hasn’t been enough time to study the effects of this social disruption and experimentation.

But the good news is that new proper scientific research is now starting to examine the context and content surrounding social media use and how combinations of different stimuli can trigger different reactions. The rumors have come home to roost that long-term social media exposes the brain to certain adaptive behaviors.

Here are a few  examples of ongoing research into how social media affects the brain’s functions in adolescents:

A. One study showed the connection to the individual’s reward system. Using MRI technology, researchers noted that the brains of adolescents while browsing Instagram, showed greater activity in neural regions implicated in “reward processing, social cognition, imitation, and attention” especially if they had many “likes” versus a few. This is worrisome to activate the brain’s reward system capable of abuse similar to gambling or narcotic drugs.

The same study noted connection to the brain’s sensory, decision-making and emotional processing areas. Certain areas reacted noticeably when teenagers felt excluded from online groups, chats, or events. This correlates with the teenagers’ pressure to belong to peer groups versus bullying or ostracism. 

B. JAMA Psychiatry (September 11) outlined two types of behaviors with greater risk for mental health issues:

1. Internalizing behavior which involves social withdrawal, difficulty coping with anxiety or depression or directing feelings inward

2. Externalizing behavior includes aggression, acting out, disobeying or other observable behaviors.

C. A six-year study tracked over 3800 students in Montreal as they watched TV, browsed social media or played video games which found that the teens who spend too much time on social media or watching television become notably more depressed, lonely and sad.

In fact, an increase of as little as one hour of social media interaction from normal levels would result in a measurable increase in depression. (original investigation published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics July 15, 2019)

“We found an association between social media and depression in adolescence,” reads the report. “Based on the upward social comparison, it may be that repeated exposure to idealized images lowers adolescents’ self-esteem, triggers depression, and enhances depression over time. Furthermore, heavier users of social media with depression appear to be more negatively affected by their time spent on social media, potentially by the nature of information that they select.”

Thankfully, this research on social media and how the parts of the brain react to it is now happening, but still in the early stages and requires much more progress, especially as associations over time such as longitudinal studies over a period of few years.

Who can answer how the brain will change after ten years of social media immersion?  What happens if these internal and external feelings are not addressed or re-mediated promptly enough? What happens if feelings of exclusion remain unresolved?
 How can we set reasonable boundaries, maintain an offline / offline  balance or intervene when symptoms appear?

This is highly relevant and important CALL-OUT 

 Keep researching, offer solutions to protect our teens. 

Certainly, our teenagers are worth our time because we need to trust their maturation into the next generation. Who will advocate especially for our teen girls to stop their exploitation on the internet as science confirms the re-patterning of their adolescent brains?

Recently, in my first podcast interview I mentioned the new study of social media psychology. I plan to do more research to share its tenets.

I look forward to any further podcast interviews with these questions and discussions:  

  1. How has social media robbed teen girls from the normal rites of passage between child and adult?
  2. There have been studies done on the development of the brain in adolescents. How does the adolescent brain process differently than the adult brain?
  3. In your book, there are many learning points. What would you say is the number one learning point in the story that can help teens change their internet habits?
  4. What is the main reason teen girls don't want to give up their internet time?
  5. Why do you use symbols as main characters, as antagonist vs protagonist?
  6. You talk about a superpower to manage time. What is the superpower tool to make smart choices versus decisions or habits? 
  7. How can parents help their teen daughters to reduce their social media time?
  8. How is it possible that fake Selfies can affect our deeper cultural values?
  9. Do you really think that some kind of education can help fix this problem re addiction?
  10. What lesson plans help to practice some of the new ideas or concepts in this story?



Please request my One Page Expert sheet and a Media Sheet ( to be added shortly with interviews and permalinks.)

What kind of questions would you ask? Do you hope that scientific research will help to find a better solution?  What bothers you about the teenage sub-culture?


I look forward to talking with you. Together, with science,  we can find a timely solution.

Sincerely,
Annemarie Berukoff

Celebrating How Iceland Deals with Teens’ Problems with Mandated Offline Self-Discovery Programs


Celebrating How Iceland Deals with Teens’ Problems with Mandated Offline Self-Discovery Programs

The brilliance of what Iceland implemented was a nationwide effort to substitute natural highs and other ways of changing brain chemistry through real experiences that could compete with the synthetic highs found in drugs (and maybe even cellphones)…How Iceland Got Teens to Say No to Drugs: article in The Atlantic 2017

Sometimes, I’m sure we may still wonder how we ever survived the hazards of being a teenager. Even without the internet, how many of our own stories can tell about growing up,  tolerating high risks, following our own rules to discover our brand of independence. It’s the nature of the adolescent brain functioning more with emotional reactions until more logical extension patterns develop in the neocortex by the age of 20 plus. 

An American professor of psychology, Harvey Milkman, made a dissertation that drugs and alcohol give children’s brains different types of stimuli depending on the child’s biology. He said that “children who want a rush are going to find that through substance abuse or shoplifting or violence. Children who are anxious are going to use substances (like alcohol) to calm themselves down and lose the inhibitions that are a consequence of their anxiety.” Whatever the causation, there are increasing worrying trends among teens with regard to delinquency, drugs and alcohol abuse and social media fixation.

Can a  connection be made here that addiction to Social Media may be about the search for that spontaneous excitement or that drama that defies limitations?

 The Big Question is how we can use natural highs with our own brain chemistry to change levels of interest without the deleterious effects of drugs or self-phone addiction?

What if, our real-life communities can set up regular offline activities to stimulate the teen’s interests and challenges to counter online indulgences? 
    
This is an evolving social problem calling for a solution. 

Here is what the country of Iceland decided to do recently

The government mandated a Self-Discovery Project to provide young people with many opportunities to engage with each other in a safe place to hang out after school such as participating in arts and sports programs. Communities set up athletic tracks, heated indoor pools, and hands-on studios where teenagers could try new things like music, dance, hip hop, art, martial arts and more. They could show others their talents, be physically and intellectually active. Their comfort zones could be challenged as they try new things to add more self-confidence and self-esteem.  Low-income families could participate with subsidized payments.

At the same time, teenagers get life-skills training, which focus on improving their thoughts about themselves and their lives, and their interactions with real people. “The main principle was that drug education doesn’t work because nobody pays attention to it. What is needed are the life skills to act on that information,” Milkman says.

The point is to make these opportunities socially stimulating enough to produce the same brain rewards as 8 hours of staring at a small screen.

The entire system was further incentivized with subsidies and tax breaks for parents as well as a number of agreements to help educate parents by strengthening their authority in the home such as 8 or 9 parenting sessions a year. Healthcare organizations, churches, the police and social services were all encouraged to come together to try to improve teen's well-being and curb substance use. 

What a simple idea … give kids something better to do with their time!

And here’s the result.  From 1998 to 2016 the rate of teens who reported being drunk in the past month dropped from 42 percent to 5 percent. Cannabis use dropped from 17 percent to 7 percent, and cigarette use declined from 23 percent to 3 percent.

Such exciting news, but then I read something very disappointing in the same article: How Iceland Got Teens to Say No to Drugs.

“A national program along the lines of Youth in Iceland is unlikely to be introduced in the US, however. One major obstacle is that while in Iceland there is long-term commitment to the national project, community health programs in the U.S. are usually funded by short-term grants.”

Seriously? Is the implication that there is some equivalence between short terms and life-long youth addiction? Why would any society sacrifice its youth and potentially create long suffering adults prone to anxiety, depression, Xanax prescriptions and other health care costs? 

Someone needs to make this statement, so I will as a devil’s advocate. What if, it's not just about lack of state funding for healthy teens, but more about protecting the big money interests? Who cares if social media turns teenagers into early consumers with premature sexual roles, if drugs and mental depression continue to be problems? Who will advocate to protect their normal social rites of passage minus adult hype?      

After all, there’s a lot of money to be made in social media.  In 2017, Snapchat made $1 billion, Twitter made $2 billion, and Facebook made $40 billion.  Much of this money comes from advertising, suggesting that the companies that advertised there also made a lot of money from user’s clicks.  Instagram, which was purchased by Facebook  for $1 billion in 2012, was recently valued at $35 billion.

The bottom line is that these technology giants are even more interested in teens posting their Selfies, spontaneously clicking and buying into their demonstrations, preying on their adolescent brains.

What if these giants can help fund programs to help teenagers find creative excitement and fulfillment offline? This kind of program may take a trickle out of their pocketbooks but also give access to their hearts and conscience. Why not give back to those who support your business model to make them better citizens in the future?

In summary, in Iceland, the relationship between people and the state has allowed an effective national program to cut the rates of teenagers smoking and drinking to excess—and, in the process, brought families closer and helped kids to become healthier in all kinds of ways.

Will other countries or communities decide that these long term benefits are worth much more than any money? Who can put a price on teenagers growing up to be happy, interested, and productive adults besides corporations or governments?

So many questions, but real excitement is that a country-wide solution has proven to be successful. The banner has been passed to each of us to advocate for our teen children to built a beneficial society for all. 

Questions, comments and discussions are always appreciated.

How to Rethink Beyond Advice To Right Mindset to Help Counter Teen Cell Phone Addiction


How to Rethink Beyond Advice To Right  Mindset to Help Counter Teen Cell Phone Addiction

Do you know that a new field of social media psychology has come into existence in the past 10 to 15 years? This early research still has many gaps about how the consequences of social media dependence will affect our children’s future. 
 “What’s at stake isn’t just how kids experience adolescence, but the constant presence of smartphones is likely to affect them well into adulthood.” Jean Twenge, psychologist

Stop and think, it is only two decades since the internet revolution began changing our psychology and society forever. Cell phones have populated like quack grass; weedy, swampy in some places, as well as with extraordinary blooms of success. Since we can’t turn the hands of time backwards we need to learn to adapt, adjust and survive; sink or swim in this digital virtual world, spectacle or disturbance at your fingertips, reality or lies.

Psychologist talk about cell phone addiction now. Here are some familiar symptoms:
  • Impulsive checking the phone every few minutes. .immediate stimuli and response
  • Withdrawing from family or shared events to use smartphone
  • Sleep disturbances related to checking pings and messages
  • Negative effects on school, family, social or emotional functioning like sadness or depression
  • Increased anxiety or irritability if phone is not available

Psychologists also realize so much of this behavior is related to the  brain’s own neurochemicals’ production.  Beginning research finds " social media use can make profound changes to the brain in similar ways that drug addiction can … receiving likes on the internet releases dopamine in the brain. This creates a sense of pleasure … similar triggers include eating chocolate or winning money."

However, on the other side, there is an unofficial condition called nomophobia, an abbreviation of no-mobile-phone, which causes withdrawal symptoms and releases a stress hormone called cortisol.  So, with or without the phone, the brain pays its own neurochemical transmitters' toll. Conditioning sets in, motivation heightens,  addiction begins to readily program the brain to find more pleasurable rewards again and again, regardless of consequences.

Would we agree that the problem to change even a habit, much less an addiction, is difficult through will power alone? First, you need to admit you have a problem and have reasons to change.  Second, now to make changes, you have to find new  activities without cell phones. 
Can teenagers do this while in the middle of the digital stream, doing what everyone else is doing as acceptable?

Examples of activities minus the cellphone:
  • No Phones in the bedroom … no disturbances … no debate
  • No phones at family meals or family outings … no debate
  • Limit access to social media, games, etc. after homework is finished
  • Put your phone in "Airplane mode" to cut out constant stream of noise
  • Turn Off Push Notifications like texts, messages, etc. to stop reflex to check every ping
  • Parents can check devices at certain times in the evening and out in the morning
  • Set goals with time-management tools (monthly, weekly, daily) to be monitored by teen...no nagging by parent
  • Keep open dialogue about pros and cons with pop star realities, many unrealistic. 
  • Limit texting … talk to your friend
  • Stimulate other positive interests in helping the community   
  • Set limits as adults in order to model healthy behavior
  • Don't punish by taking cellphone away - social amputation. Instead offer rewards for limiting use for certain time periods. 

The bottom line is there's no doubt that too much screen time affects teenagers’ physical actions, emotional experiences, and social relationships.  Who would disagree that it is the right time to talk about both the benefits and pitfalls of screen time and how to use smartphones responsibly? Wasted time versus useful time matters to everyone.

Beyond all this actionable advice, I believe that every teen girl must also create an inbuilt internal mindset that her personal  time is precious, and she will choose carefully and wisely how to spend it.

So, I wrote a teen girl story as a first-person narration to put the reader into her shoes and to live her experiences as she discovers the value of time itself as redemption at the end.  Questions are asked like “if you could see your future, would you make the same choices today.“ The elements of time are discussed within a strange paradox that time can only be managed in a very small-time frame called today and today can be directed by an even smaller matter of choice. The matter of making a smart choice is not “flipping a coin” but using a simple script regarding 3 levels of experience and other factors.

The progression of the story is to create the right MINDSET that time is your most important asset or value. Then it makes good sense to use a superpower tool to make smart choices in different situations.  At the end of trials and tribulations, the teen girl looks at her open hand holding her timeline, knowing it is her responsibility. The reader can adopt her mindset or not, a common denominator that all girls can respond to and choose to take care of their personal quality time.  

It seems a natural solution that the more time can be spent on celebrating a timeline,  the more important it becomes. What if, it is possible to create a strong, undeniable mindset that my OFFLINE personal  time is as important, if not more important, than my ONLINE time scrolling and moiling on Social Media? Is it possible to believe that this personal mindset might be the right solution or antidote to help counter this teen cell phone addiction? 

It is certainly an idea worth checking out.

Questions and comments are always welcome. What are your ideas to help curb teen cell phone usage? Or do think this is even a problem?

I raise my eyes and watch the wide range of the river flowing southward messaging to beware of stronger and deeper currents ahead. 
What if, I could message such direct purpose to mean what I really believe?
I know there is power in the river. A young boy had once been swept away in its current by swimming too far from shore.
There is power in the internet. In fact, it has solidly bonded with our society.  The choice is to stay connected or disconnected, to be more informed or less informed, have more confidence or have more fear,  keep your mind open or keep it closed.
It doesn't have to be a monster devouring its Selfie offspring tethered on Celties. But I get the difference now that I have a super power, too, unto myself to make to respect my shorelines.  It is a wide open world of choice. Make it a world of smart, well informed choices.

Why Does Grannie Play Such an Important Role in this Teen Girl's Story?



Why Does Grannie Play Such an Important Role in this Teen Girl’s Story?

"The secret to being a matriarch, as best as I can tell, is having two things. The first is radical authenticity, which, over time, begets a certain fearlessness. The second is a kind and compassionate heart … And some of them will do nothing more radical with their lives than being authentic and kind. But acts of authenticity and kindness in a world of artifice and cynicism are nothing short of revolutionary and are the best kind of civil disobedience.”   Lynn Beisner

One of my nieces asked me when I was starting to write my e-book, “Why are writing a book about teen age girls when you are so old?” 

"Good question,” I said. ”Because I have a lifetime to share with a teenager that is so long, rich and full of flavor with only a few years left. The teen girl has a long, thin, hungry timeline with less experience but perhaps she can find some maturity from mine."

From a Big Picture perspective, the grannie and the teen girl share a common womanhood through time. Women have been caretakers of the home and family from skinning the buffalo to working in the fields to skilled labor in factories to five-star executives in big business. Many have developed talents and skills beyond raising families to earn significant spending powers, decades before the advance of the internet. They are Olympians, prime ministers, entrepreneurs, famous designers, social and political activists, artists, and Nobel Prize winners.

Some have changed the course of history like Marie Curie who founded the new science of radioactivity; or Rosa Parks who challenged race segregation and sparked the civil rights movement; or Clara Barton, a nurse who established the American Red Cross; or Wangari Maathai who became the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for her work on sustainable development and democracy in 2004.

Now there are more women enrolled in colleges than men. The grandmothers of the world will not be invisible. Many are in retirement mode expected to live into their 90’s. Ageism can be an asset. It’s a choice to make beauty get stronger with aging.

However, women do not forget their past struggles, living through tough times of inequality with limited rights to vote, discriminatory wage practices versus men, and job advancement. From 1960’s to 1970’s the feminist movement sought to reform issues such as reproductive rights, domestic violence, maternity leave, equal pay and sexual harassment. The recent #MeToo movement continues to express gender equality and prevent sexual imbalances especially at work. But who will advocate for teen girls to stop online sexual exploitation?

Our female empowerment was our strength in using our intelligence, courage, and resourcefulness.  We were able to excel and contribute so much before the age of this internet extravaganza.

So, do we dare to ask, what is the source of female empowerment now for our teen girls? Statistics show there is a drop in the percentage of girls who say they feel confident between Grades 6 and 10 from 36% to 14%.

In 1959, Ruth Handler’s company launched the Barbie doll, one of the first dolls made to look like a grown up. Within six years of Barbie’s launch, Mattel had become a Fortune 500 company. Young girls were fascinated by these hard plastic, slender dolls with long blond hair and tiny perfect features. They could now pretend to be perfect young women with a perfect man by her side. It was not a soft, chubby baby doll to feed and nurture but a slender goddess to grow into ... to be a princess in a make-believe world that they may, or may not, grow out of.

Disney princess products can total 4 billion dollars annually. The message again is to spend time, energy and money to look pretty and popular. Check out the kiddie lingerie aisle with flirty bras and panties for 8-year-olds so tweens can start acting like teenagers who want to act like adults. What a sad unacceptable conundrum for a culture to feed on its youth before their time.

How terribly sad when you do a worldwide web search with the words “teen girls,” and after the first 3 titles about clothes, shoes and accessories, the next items are about real teens twerking; why teen girls crave older partners and a Facebook page for hot teen selfie shots.  Even pornographers have found that they can get more clicks and  views, whenever it is extreme enough often involving encounters with teenage girls and boys.

So, turn on the channels … cable TV, MTV, sitcoms, websites, social media, negative news stories. What do you expect to happen to tweens as they grow into teen girls in a hyper media culture so greatly concerned about body image and feelings of inferiority if not a Barbie doll or Disney princess?  Is their strength to be found in this filtered imagery of vain girly-girl culture based on physical objectives on a conveyor belt to early sexualization?  Is their potential to be determined by a full face of make-up or belly-piercings to get more LIKES from a virtual strange mob?     

Teens only have 6 short hormonal years of maturation to transition from total family dependence to independence as a young adult to live independently. They need the experience of being a teenager with personal opportunities to be exploratory on their terms and working together with other unique selves with mutual respect. They really do not need pressure to play the consumer role, the sexual role or competitive cosmetic world as promoted by companies for profits. They need to establish a value system to carry forward to their own families. Their adolescent  brain hasn’t yet developed the prefrontal cortex for logical, deductive judgement skills until their mid-twenties.  

How sad to say there are too many examples of increased  teens’ risk for social and behavioral problems, school adjustment issues, teen pregnancy, smoking, and drug and alcohol abuse.

As a society, we must do better for our teenage daughters on their journey to womanhood. As older women we must show them the precious value of their time and how to spend it wisely. We need to discuss the progression of time in elements they can understand. In this information overflow we need to help them make smart choices to avoid making mistakes that can derail a lifetime of possibilities. We need to encourage teen girls to be stand tall, strong and proud of who they are, more aligned with the universe than social media.   

Perhaps, it’s true that matriarchs are women who have stopped trying to meet social expectations of what a woman is supposed to look like and act like. They are what femininity really looks like when you strip away much of the cultural artifice to the pure soul of unselfishness beneath. Perhaps that is their power of truth to share with teenage girls. 

It’s definitely worthwhile to talk with a grandmother ... whenever and if possible.

Questions and comments are always welcome, especially from grannies, daughters and granddaughters.

Sincerely,
Annemarie

Check YouTube video: 10 Rules for Teen Girls


 ”You know how all the great myths about superheroes are about their journeys to   overcome problems and teach us morals between right and wrong.

Today the real tragedy with young people is how to overcome the huge problems created by a Giant Media Monster; like a Medusa manipulator using her vast army of words and images to twist, to seduce and undermine the ability of people to think critically and freely. It's like a vast army of fake selfies attacking what's good and normal.

The great personal tragedy is made worse because most young people do not use their real characters to take offensive action but rather create their own fake Selfies to closely reflect what the Media Monster promotes.  These are soldiers on the same side with the same goals which means the Monster wins every time. Like I said before, the Monster has no regret for what it is doing; it will never apologize as long as you keep liking her artificial ugliness again and again."

Ten Questions for Pod Show Hosts Interested to Advocate for Teen Girls Rights on Social Media


Ten Questions for Pod Show Hosts Interested to Advocate for Teen Girls' Rights on Social Media  

 Now they are targeting smartphones and social media. On January 6th two large investors in Apple demanded that the technology company must help parents curtail their children’s iPhone use, citing research into the links between adolescent social-media habits and risk factors for suicide, such as depression. Old and new media abound with reports about phones’ addictive, mind-warping properties. On the school run, parents compare tactics for limiting screen time.    The Economist. Jan. 11, 2018

I am excited and ready to enter a new phase of internet marketing. Excellent mentor ship brings me into the exciting world of  iPod shows and broadcasting.

Social Media is alive and well; Tweets still twitter; YouTube videos shine and sing; Facebook shouts out a worldwide audience; but, nothing can compare to having a conversation with a smart iPod show host or hostess for an hour to explain the premise of my new e-book called Teen Girl Faces Time in the Sand.

I am now ready to make my entrance on this world-wide stage in awe of this opportunity with the sincerest hope that any information I can share will help teen girls to view that their personal offline time is as important, if not more important, than being plugged into an alternate reality. I believe there is no other common antidote to this extreme cell phone and Selfie conditioning except a deep personal mindset that My Time is precious, respected and protected as explained in the story.

Here are ten questions I will be answering:

  1. You are an educator for 24 years. What changed from when you first started to decades after?
  2. How has social media robbed teen girls from the normal rites of passage between child and adult?
  3. There have been studies done on the development of the brain in adolescents. How does the adolescent brain process differently than the adult brain?
  4. In your book, there are many learning points. What would you say is the number on learning point in the story that can help teens change their internet habits?
  5. What is the main reason teen girls don't want to give up their internet time?
  6. Why do you use symbols as main characters, as antagonist vs protagonist?
  7. You talk about a superpower to manage time. What is the superpower tool to make smart choices versus decisions or habits? 
  8. How can parents help their teen daughters to reduce their social media time?
  9. How is it possible that fake Selfies can affect our deeper cultural values?
  10. What lesson plans help to practice some of the new ideas or concepts in this story?

I look forward to talking with any persons, or referrals, who may be interested in these topics. No teenage girl could write a story like this, but a long traditional lifeline can offer resources to cope with such drastic societal changes. Who else can advocate on behalf of teenage girls to prevent their exploitation on the internet? They will not just “grow out of it” but pass this sub-culture as young mothers to their children.  I believe we should try to find a common denominator for every teen girl to find her true Self and find a place to be a real Somebody in her real world.

What kind of questions would you ask?  What bothers you about the teenage sub-culture?

Please request my One Page Expert Sheet and Media Review.

I look forward to talking with you. Together, we can continue to find a timely solution.
