Reportedly a British man was so distraught he couldn't take the perfect selfie he attempted suicide with an overdose of pills. That's obviously an extreme case but experts warn our national obsession with taking pictures we can post on social media sites encourages bad behavior.
Houston family therapist Mary Jo Rapini says many kids, especially teen girls, take too many selfies.
"They forget how much time they're taking to look good for the selfies and they just become narcissistic; it's all about themselves and they just lose contact with the real world."
Rapini says depending on the age, there's just no good reason for a kid to have a smart phone.
"A lot of parents are giving their kids an iPhone. I don't know why their child needs an iPhone; a phone I can understand but they don't need an iPhone."
She says giving kids regular phones would cut down on the selfie craze.
