We know that this generation kids are being introduced early to a variety of gadgets which many parents are using, such as Smartphones, iPads, Tablets, computers, etc. With the children’s continuous accessibility to these gadgets, there’s a great possibility that this may lead to addiction. Yes, addiction, which causes many parents nowadays problems in dealing with their children.
My Personal Experience
Based on my own experience with our two kids (6 yo and 5 yo), I came to the point where getting rid of the gadgets from their hands was hard, and it was so upsetting that every time I speak to them they seemed to pass my words to their other ear or they pretend that they don’t recognize my presence. And who’s that parent will be happy over such particular scenario? Another worst case is when they will lose their respect for us as parents.
Since I gave access my children to my personal gadgets, the more I became stressful in disciplining them. As a full-time mother who deal and spend most of my time with our children as the father is busy working to support us financially, honestly, I tried everything to keep the kids busy and entertained while at home or outside especially during our shopping times.
