The downside of texting

College age students text the most. Many prefer texting to calls or e-mail. I should know. My kids fall in this category.

New research suggests that the large amounts of texting could lead to overuse injuries -- once only reserved for older adults who have spent years in front of a computer. The discomfort associated with repetitive text messaging gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "pain in the neck," as Science Daily reports.

Kids are getting frozen fingers from texting so much. I worry that if they are texting in class, they are not listening- thus their grades are falling-
