We are all aware of the advancements of the technology that is taking place in today’s date. Also we come around with the experience that small children of 2-4 years are more smarter when it comes to mobile technology. The time for which the children are spending on screens is far to much. It will have adverse effects later on their life.
A study recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) looked at 2,400 typically developing children in Canada. Researchers found that greater amounts of screen time from ages 2 to 3 were associated with significantly poorer performance when their development was assessed at ages 3 and 5.
The parents should take care not exposing so much of technology to their children. We all know that it is the best way to keep the misbehaving children busy in some or the other work. But in a initial time, it also has long time effects on the life of the children.
The best way to cater with this problem, is keeping them busy in some productive activities like playing, music, etc. which will have a good impact on the later life. The average cartoon is about 30 minutes long. Tablet- or phone-based games can extend far past that. That makes it easy to go over the recommended time limit for young children. But, while the temptation to keep rowdy children quiet using TV and digital devices can be strong, parents need to focus on what’s really important.
