What I Gave to my child initially, was not accepted by her. But later when I properly explained the benefits of it, she was very much pleased with my decision. It is not always possible to keep an eye at everything that your child does. In the modern day technical, smartphones have become a part and parcel of life. Kids are also not out of it’s reach. Infact, they are more inclined towards it’s use. Along with many positive sides, smartphones are hampering the innocent lives of children. I hear a lot of cases of teenage suicides now. A mere eighth grade child is sexually portraying her body over internet. The wide network of internet has destroyed the normal peace of mankind.
What I Gave To My Child
Instead of giving a smartphone, I decided to give my child an electronic Gizmo Gadget Watch. It is a marvellous creation. I can send messages and videos from my smartphone to the watch. She can send all her messages and even scream out louder at me during her school also. I just have to pay a small monthly fees for it. Most parents today prefer to give smartphones to their children to keep them engaged. But they don’t realize the adverse effects of the same. I am also looking for a newly innovative device- Light Phone II. It is a 4G phone but smart and non-addictive. It is not available presently. In this way my daughter will be technically smart but not addicted to any dumb device.
Harmful Effects Of Technology
There are many adverse effects of social networks on the kids. Every second kid is having an instagram account. Sometimes notifications from any porn sites can hit your child’s social network account. You cannot stop those even when the account is under parental control. You can avoid the bad influences of such instances by telling your child to forget some specific words whenever he/she comes across the same. The idea is not to cut your child from the rest of the world, but to keep her activities under check so that the little one does not involve in negative things.
Some Other Ways
There are many ways in which you can keep your child engaged. One such thing is giving your baby an ‘art desk’. This will help to awake the artist in your child who will make wonderful creations. The kid can put all his emotions in the drawing and be happy with it. However, if you really donot have any problem with smartphones, it is better a give a kindle. Nowadays, the addiction of mobile games have turned children into zombies. They are very reluctant to go out or read books. In order to build reading habits in your child, kindle is the best solution. Many E-books are available online now. Kindles are superb combination of smart technology and knowledge. It is easy to handle and the child can carry it wherever he/she goes.
