Electronic devices (Smart phones and Tablets) and young kids, is addiction
This is really worrisome for me when i see my grand kids all the time playing with smartphone or tablets.
If you do not stop them, they will keep on playing for hours and hours.
I was surprised when my grandson just one year old knows that when you push the start button on Iphone and windows will open. After doing he will laugh that he knows how to play the iphone.
When you want to stop them from tablets, they will start crying and create fuss.
My other two grandson one is five and other is three years, they will keep on playing on the tablet for hours and hours.
Now my aim to give these three observations is that this will be true as well for any house. I don’t believe that any house is free of this disease.I am calling it disease because the kids are just sitting in the chairs and there is no healthy activities.
This activity is becoming addiction for the kids.
Now is there any benefit? Yes there are benefits like increase in the language vocabulary, general knowledge and awareness about so many things. But we have to see that is it worth that a baby of 3 or 4 years knows about those things. I think that is not of any use.But we are depriving them from the physical activity which is more important for their health. physical activity will give stimulus to bone growth and muscles.
We know 50 years back this electronic activity was not there but still we were having intelligent scientists and writers. I don’t believe that these smart phones or tablets increases the knowledge, this is only the escape of parents from the kids. Parents are busy and they have no time to give attention to their kids.Parents activities are also the same electronic devices where they will spent time on facebook chatting or playing the candy crush. They forget their most important responsibility.
I will request the parents that they should not allow the kids to develop this addiction.
