Mobile to Children

Our children have been away from their schools, class rooms, playgrounds, canteens, computers labs and over all from their most favourite friends and classmates since this I’ll omen appeared on our most beautiful and charming earth. This long unending gap between students and school is leaving very deep signs on the mental calibre of our children and teens. No doubt, onset of online classes have tried to compensate this loss to a large extend. Online classes have tried to keep the flame of education burning in the dark storm of corona virus.
This initiative of government is a best alternative to in-person teaching and also helped our aspirants to accomplish their dreams of development but friends, irony here is, this is only the story of big cities and urban centres which run on fast internet connection, rest of our rural indian children are almost deprived of benifits of this mode of education because of poor internet facility.
Friends, this fatal corona virus has not only snatched the precious lives of our dear one’s and deprived us from our happy and normal day to day life but also forced million of parents across the globe to provide smart phones to their children and teenagers.
As we all know adolescence is that juncture of life, when teenagers have to learn a lot of things, it is that crucial phase of life, when they have to work hard with books, it is that time of human struggle, when one has to form a principle of his life and it is that phase of our life where we cannot distinguish between right and wrong.
At this turning point of life, we are seeing our children and teenagers busy with mobile phones. I am sure every parent would agree with me that very few students are serious about online classes, majority of students are seen playing games, visiting objectionable sites, watching movies and vulgar videos on mobiles instead of taking their classes.
Following are some of drastic changes seen in our children due to misuse of mobile.
(1) Unlimited access to mobiles has given rise to drastic changes in their attitude and perception level. Our wards are becoming irritable, quarrelsome and irrational.
(2) Children prefer to spend more and more times with their mobiles than with their family, friends and relatives.
(3) Excessive use of mobiles is dragging them towards the dark world of isolation.
(4) Addiction of mobiles has reduced their interest in reading books to almost zero.
(5) This mobile addiction is going to be very dangerous for the future of our wards and for the future of whole society.
Above all, it is getting impossible for parents to bring out their wards from this mobile addiction.
