second-hand screen time

Similar to the negative effects of second-hand smoking, second-hand screen time refers to another indirect health hazard. It's when someone else is subjected to looking at you look at your phone or computer. Often times our screen habits don't just impact us but also those in our vicinity and cause psychological and social implications. 

Historical perspective: Research tells us that phones, like cigarettes, are addictive and both became wildly popular before researchers learned about their health hazards. As of early 2020, American adults touch their phones an average of 2,500 times per day. Kids, even babies, notice these habits. The result of this affects the others attention spans and behavior.
