Technology device use and social network communication are becoming determinant factors influencing children and adolescents’ social relationships, development, health, and adaption to their daily life. Appropriate knowledge regarding how these variables interact with the different developmental areas and domains are challenging for all caregivers who support a healthy development. For this purpose, we are collecting contributions for a Special Issue about psychosocial wellbeing and development challenges in children and adolescents in relation to technology and social media. We invite submissions of original research papers, reviews, notes, comments, which will be published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health by MDPI. Qualitative or quantitative contributions, from basic or applied research, that will extend the knowledge in this filed are welcomed.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish relevant research dealing with children’s wellbeing and healthcare during infancy, childhood, and adolescence in relation to technology devices and social networks. Parental behaviors towards their children’s education to technology use is an important topic too. The issue aims to cover the emotive, psychological, and social development of children relevant for their education, health, care, and wellbeing.
