Parents these days believe that part of what it takes to be twenty-first century compliant is to give your kids a mobile phone or worse still, a tablet. There are a lot of reasons why you should not give them or even arouse their interests in having a mobile phone and tablet. Make them appreciate other fun and creative things that a mobile phone and a tablet that just helps them limit their thinking ability.
In those days kids did not have access to phones and tablets. In fact, some parents did not even have smartphones or tablets then. But nowadays, you see kids, including babies with either their Dad’s or mum’s phone- drooling on it, dropping it and the only excuse the parents can come up with is-well, that’s the best way to make them quiet and keep them happy.
MAJOR REASONS WHY YOU SHOULDN’T GIVE YOUR KIDS MOBILE PHONES AND TABLETS
You shouldn’t give your kids mobile phones and tablets until it becomes very necessary for them to have one. Because they end up becoming so dependent on these devices and shut the door of their creativity. The mobile phone and tablet become a priority. This is so because they feel they can run to it for answers and they will have it immediately Google sees it.
Kids now get so dependent on the mobile phones and tablets. They forget to discuss vital issues with their parents. The parents now hardly know what’s going on in the life of the kid. This is because the kid asks and tells the internet almost anything. As a matter of fact, these devices make the kids become secretive towards their parents.
Now, the parents cannot effectively communicate with the child, because the child feels like the whole answer to the problem lies on the internet. The child then extends this lack of communication to his/her peer group. The kid will not be able to talk physically and will depend on stuff like calls, chats and distant messages. Instead of visiting friends, playing games, and living a normal childhood life, the kid will lack such and depend on the devices to do all that he is meant to do and experience.
You need your child to be mature enough in order for that child to handle a mobile phone and tablet. Your child will be open to a lot of dangerous content such as pornography, fraud, and other related stuff. You don’t want your child having access to too much mature stuff now right? Then help them see the fun in other stuff that has nothing, or little to do with technology.
Generally, if you want your child to have a perfect childhood and growth, then it is very important that you do not let them have all these devices yet. Let them understand vital stuff like creativity, independence, priority, maturity etc. before they start thinking of a mobile phone or tablet.
