Recently I visited primary school kids in my village# primary
school.It was a pleasant experience.Children did not have
# smart phones.
In my city school I have met more children under the age of five
than I can count, when I spoke to them or ask them
a question, they reply without making # eye contact
I read years ago that one of the major problems with
#phones is that parents no longer make eye contact with their
children. This is a big problem because learning# language,
connecting with others, and attention# spans are all super
influenced by eye contact which is missing because of use
of smart phones. My sister is a teacher of third grade kids and she said none
of them make eye contact with her. Furthermore, after
spending a whole year with their classmates,she noticed
her class kids don’t know more than half of the names of
their# classmates. That didn’t happen in our school days,
We knew every kid of our class. To correct this unpleasant situation, my sister now makes her
third graders say hello to each other, every single student
in the class, by name every morning while making eye contact.
I’ve also noticed in cities hardly any kid play outside. When
we were small my #neighborhoods were filled with kids outside.
We used to ride bikes or play sports . Now to my surprise
all outside places of playing are empty everywhere .All these
# odd happening have strong reasons and my submission
why it is so is following. 1.I know a lot of parents of little kids use # iPads as a # babysitter.
I see how # tempting it is, it keeps children
quiet at dinner or when they’re# bugging their parents.
But, I think it’s not a right approach to do so.It is going
to have some #detrimental effects on creativity or social
interaction skills of small kids. 2.Another observation which made me think deeply is when
kids come to # middle and high school, I noticed they’re all
everywhere. It’s like they never leave school talking to
3. First of all, that’s super distracting. I myself wouldn’t
have focused as well in school if I had a smart phone at
that time. Second, phone indue s# anxiety.
High school was enough hard for me, I distinctly remember
when I used to go home, home at night I was a #uncool kid.
I can’t imagine having my whole life on display in #smart phone
when my little # brain was still developing and I had so much
anxiety. My observations written in this article might sound
like I’m a very old woman who hates on technology.But friends
these are my observations.Its high time we should think #positive for
about our next generation while using smart phone technology
Moral of story-I just feel that the current #generation is
a # science experiment as being the # first generations raised
by technology, and I think we’re starting to see the
effects of it.Let us be #responsible citizen/parents and use
technology for making positive impact on next generation.
