Yes. I notice that today at a cafe when a group of college kids probably sitting together but not talking. Their faces on their phone going through Viber.

So true, they are impatient and unfocused. They can't stand to be bored for even a minute. I have seen my nephews throw a major tantrum just because they are forbidden from using their tablets during dinner.

Yes, parents should limit the kid's time on the tablet/phone even TV.

Maybe but it's very useful for us. We don't need to go to the library anymore because of it.

Yes, it's not good for their social skills and bad for the eyes too.

This would only apply if the kids are young. I think for older kids, you have less control over their gadgets as they need most of it for school.

yes, they too are engrossed in their gadgets but so are the adults. It's a horrible thing but it can't be helped because the kids would only copy the adults. We should learn how to minimize our own gadget times as well.

I am still astounded by the fact that my five year old cousin has a tablet? That they have cellphones, ipads before they reach High School? None of them play outside, or with one another, growing up. I genuinely think that this stagnates them as social beings. Yes, they have the world of information at a younger age, yet they do not know how to function, efficiently and independently, within society.

My sister works as a preschool teacher. She claims that the use of digital technology within teaching is ridiculous. She teaches 5 and 4 year old's. I find that crazy? To be so reliant and involved in technology from such a young age?

The scientists said that however the unfriendly impacts of TV and video on little youngsters was surely knew, society's comprehension of the effect of cell phones on the pre-school mind has been outpaced by how much kids are now utilizing them.

I think technology is a great aid to every facet of society. it should, however, be treated with caution else we will have generation after generation who place more efficacy on selfies rather than wikipedia
