Online classes phone a facilitator of changed reality.With the coming of the pandemic everybody felt the need for an alternative for schooling and regular classes, and so came the concept of online classes. And with the online-classes kids got kind of their personal phone way before their parents might have given them cell phones.
I got my first phone only after class Xth and that too with few limitations of usage. But kids these days, have got in a way their personal phone for all day long on the name of online classes without any kind of time limit.
This has made them addicted to phones and nobody is realising that. You will find 10 to 12-year-old kids on social networking sites be it Facebook, Instagram and even on Twitter. Every time a young cousin of mine maybe 12-13 years old sends me a friend request on these sites I feel this need for regulations in their lives. With their beautiful pictures clicked with Instagram in front of cars and beautiful backgrounds these kids think they are adults.
Even adults could not handle the influence of the internet, social media and the social life of the virtual world. Can we expect these kids to be aware of the dark side of the Internet? and having a personal phone as a disturbing element, It rarely happens that students only use phones for study purposes, and often indulge in online gaming which at times can be very violent and outrageous.
Isn't it a modern-day problem? Do you see it as a problem or not?
Is there any way to not hamper child study and not compromise their studies but limit their phone usage?
