It’s a situation that’s very familiar in modern society: excessive smartphone use. We’re hearing more and more about the health implications and the dangers of excessive smartphone use, which begs the question: should parents be stricter in controlling their children’s use of tech?
Despite all of the social pressures of having a smartphone, and the obvious benefits of using smartphones and tablets, experts continue to call out to parents to be more conscientious when deciding to buy a phone for their kids. In a recent campaign called “Truth about Tech“, an event was held to raise awareness of the negative impact of tech on children, and how they are becoming addicted.
It’s often a bit of a joke, seeing how everyone is literally glued to their smartphones like zombies, and yes, most of us use our phones day-to-day with no problems. But, one of the most alarming things is how kids start using devices at such a young age, so it isn’t surprising that more and more parents are limiting the technology their kids use at home.
