Don't these equipments radiate? Don't our microwaves radiate? Don't our mosquito replants radiate? What abt all those radiations from all other equipments out on the lose? And aren't radiations bad for everyone,
Addiction of anything is not good, be it even be studies... Then why don't we stop kids from studying forever
We are not debating using these equipments ........we are talking aboutt it excessive usage!
Do we expose ourselves to microwave radiations 24 hrs a day ? There are some kids who watch TV all night ! Do parents want kids to lose sleep over such techie gizmo stuff ??? Is it worth it ? Kids do carry cellphones 24 hrs a day in their pockets ...is it really needed ? Rather than texting in the middle of the night, they can have peaceful sleep na :)
My point is that if you know something is harmful for you child, why not stop if ?
Same goes with alcohol ......do you want your child to consume alcohol at teen age just coz he can learn from his own mistakes ??
I am with you on giving freedom to kids but parent's should educate kids about ill-effects where possible :)
I didn't get your viewpoint about addiction to studies ......
EDIT : Since you mentioned internet, should there be parental controls on what kids watch on TV and internet ? Should parents let child watch any adult programs/websites just coz child can learn everything on his own ...and be liberal with them ? I guess all this should be introduced at the right age :)
I agree anything in moderation is acceptable...............but gizmos seem to be the' in' thing with children today...... It is up to the parents to draw the line and I feel if explained in a proper manner, they might rebel initially but will eventually accept it.
Sadly what we grew up with, letter writing, reading books, going for walks seem to be so ordinary and redundant these days.
I guess technology comes at a price.
