Though it seems like a magic to kids while playing games, moving screens, music, dance all at one click, yet it may turn tragic for their physical, mental and social health.
KEEP AN EYE:
Do you keep an eye on what is being viewed by your kids on the TV and being surfed on the net. While doing this you are not doing anything wrong, but you have the right to direct them to the right path. Don’t overreact but contemplate the situation with patience and correct modestly. Make them know what they can see and what is not meant for them. Don’t let the technology serve them, what they are unable to digest.
This is a gradual practice as you have to pay regular time to teach them what is good and profitable to watch and is what not. According to a research children under 24 months of age shouldn’t use mobiles, but parents lack the time and compensate with grants of using technology, smugly, unchecked. This is leading them to disaster and a check is seriously needed for the same.
ALARMING FOR PHYSIQUE:
Physical health is on much risk, as while playing on screens they don’t maintain right posture and putting spinal cord at high risk, which may result in some disability. Vision problems are on increase resulting from more exposure and less distance from the screen. Studying using books must be preferred.
Children don’t want to play outdoors. They prefer to play on screen all the time. This is resulting in the undergrowth of social relations. Internet is making them lazy and are unable to interact with people around them. They don’t want to go out for playing as they feel relaxed at home.
Technology is profitable if used wisely. Viewing and working with help of technology is a boon. Parental guidance is advised for the children till they are not able to distinguish between pleasant and unpleasant.
