Every time I see a child handling (as well as demanding) a smart phone, I get more and more anxious of what the future is in for. The craze and addiction with that inhuman device of the present day already shakes the earth and I don’t want to imagine how these kids’ attitudes and behaviour will be once they reach their teens.
They’re fully qualified at a very young age to operate the YouTube app, get into the Whatsapp and Facebook app and God-Knows-What-Else app, along with discovering whatever password the parent locks the phone with.
It’s frightening, people, frightening.
One wrong tap of the finger on that touch screen has a high probability of scarring that child for life.
In truth, I don’t know much about parenting but I do know that the devil device with the sleek touch is not an amusing toy for a kid. The Toy Store businesses are seriously going to have a run for their money and that is not a comforting thought.
To calm a child down, the smart phone is thrust in front of its eyes.
To get a child to eat, the smart phone is thrust in front of its eyes.
To get a child to stop nagging the parent, said parent thrusts their smart phone in front of its eyes.
The poor innocent child is deliberately made to fraternise with something inhuman and forced to forget about the humans around it.
How many of you agree?
