But excessive use of smartphones by the young generation (kids) has already started to affect their lives. They spend a lot of time on phones by playing countless games or seeing cartoons or other videos. For worse or better, this trend has started to bother young children.
But frequent utilize of a Smartphone can be risky for our kids. Today my article is for those mothers who feel that their children are happy with smartphones. Mobile phones can be an easy way to keep children busy, but they also have opposite effects. Today I will tell you how smartphones affect the lives of children adversely.
After all, why are kids paying attention to mobiles?
Friends, the 6-month-old newborn is attracted to the variety of pictures and colours. This is why children attract towards mobile. The light emanating from the mobile and the images seen on it attract children. Simultaneously, mobile sound also creates eagerness in children to learn about it and touch it.

Negative impact on Mental Health:
Kids use mobile for various reasons; sometimes, it puts a negative impact on their mental health. Many kids who have become sufferers of cyber bullying may admit their experience much later in life when mental harm has occurred. Social media may induce anxiety and depression when the children are not given the online attention they suppose.
Frequent use of a mobile phone can also cause a change in the child's behaviour. Addiction of smartphones does not allow the child to concentrate on any other work. Children also become irritable due to the excessive use of mobile. Most of the aggression problems in children are due to excessive use of mobile.
Friends, every parent wishes for a better future for children. The primary purpose of the parents' life is to give them all kinds of amenities. But some luxuries can affect their children's lives worse.
Excess use of mobile phones can cause problems for you and your child. So as far as possible, keep your children away from mobile. Motivate them to play outdoor games which will be helpful in their development.
For the better future of children, if we take some decisive steps beforehand, it will help our children's overall development.
