Gadget addiction of kids In the digital world, a major concern for parents is that their kids have become addicted to screens. They think that their kids may be missing out on real-life learning experiences due to the increased usage of mobile screens and laptops. In a set of guidelines, the World Health Organization said that infants under 1 year old should not be exposed to electronic screens and that children between the ages of 2 and 4 should not have more than one hour of “sedentary screen time” each day. The negative effects too much screen time can have on your children :


  • Increase chances of becoming obese, even morbidly obese if the problem continues for a long period. There’s no physical movement involved in screen time. Plus, kids don’t like to take time away from their digital screens to sit down for healthy meals. And, what’s more, many parents aren’t making them.
  • Harder time getting to bed, and have problems with them falling asleep as they continue obsessing about the Internet, video games, and YouTube videos during the night.
