So sad to read about what happens when a selfie obsession goes out of control. The author's summary is food for thought
For most of us, the selfie phenomenon is tongue-in-cheek, but for some it could become a self-destructive form of narcissism, experts warn, potentially leading to harm. Selfies alone may not cause people to commit suicide, but an unhealthy obsession with them could be a warning sign for some type of mental disorder.
At what point does selfie taking stop being cute and cross over to "unhealthy obsession" territory is the question most parents would have. Every kid is different and their ability to live through a short period of craziness varies too.
