Children With Parents Who Are Addicted To Their Cell Phones Affect Children's Development
How many hours a day do you use your cell phone?
Be honest. How often do you scroll through social media, watch a cute video, read an article, check the weather, play games, or google something interesting? How often do you scroll just standing in line, because you are bored or you just do it out of habit?
Technology is everywhere. It has changed our world and it is here to stay. Endless information is available at our fingertips. We practically don’t even have to leave our house anymore if we don’t want to. We can take care of anything on our cellphone.
It is popular to point fingers and Millennials and the younger generations for being technology addicts, but let’s be real, older generations, including our grandparents, are just the same. The only difference is that older Millennials and older still actively remember pre-smartphone or even pre-internet times.
Have you ever wondered how technology has affected us? How does it affect our mental health and development? How about our children? They don’t know a world without smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
