Harmful Effects of Mobile Phones on Kids
Do you let the youngest members of your house use your cell phone? Does your child spend long hours talking on the phone? Do you think it is harmless to give the mobile phone to your child? If yes, then you may have to think twice before doing so!
  • Health Hazard: Today children are growing up in a radio-frequency environment that never existed in human history before. The radiation emitted by smart phones can have adverse effects on children. Children absorb more than 60 percent of the radiation into the brain than adults. Their brain is thinner skin, tissues, and bones allow them to absorb the radiation twice than the grown-ups. A 2008 study by Dr Gaby Badre found children who used their cell phones extensively experienced more sleep disruption, restlessness and fatigue than children who limited their cell phone usage. Too much screen time can result in digital eyestrain, which can include burning, itchy, or tired eyes.
  • Academics: Children, just like the teens, are addicted to mobile phones. They play games, chat and talk to their friends on their mobile phone all the time. Along with the school supplies, many students make their daily trips to their school with their mobile phones. They talk on the phone during the free time and send messages during the classes. Thus, they miss the lesson taught and fall behind the other students.
  • Aggressive Behaviour and Effects Of Smartphones on Family: As mobile phones are keeping the brain continuously busy without any rest, kids tend to be more annoying. They tend to become more violent and irritated even at the normal discussions. This, in turn, hampers their social life. The worst case is that children stop communicating with the family all together. Children can feel the need to constantly check for messages. They become irritable when they stay away from their smartphone for any period of time.
  • Inappropriate Media: Like any other gadget, the mobile phone is also a tool and can be used for wrong purposes. Kids could come across inappropriate messages, images, or texts shared by their friends or in the group, and further pass it on to others. They can find their way to pornography at an early age, changing their perceptions and thought process. Even exchanging images of their own, irresponsibly, can create a fiasco that impacts their lives for a long time.
