They say that “playing” is part of our childhood, yes it is. It’s actually an essential point in our development as an adolescent according to psychology.
But we may have to consider the present- the Millennials. There are a lot of factors already. And what about them, we’re all aware that they have a different definition of what playing should be compared to what our parents did in their childhood.
Yes, they’ll be spending now more on today’s electronic gadgets- such as phones, tablets, and laptops. These gadgets have games, yes. There are educational ones, yes but is using or playing with these, healthy? There are advantages and disadvantages when you as a parent, consider this is as part of your parenting, letting your children use gadgets at an early age.
Of course, we will all agree that there’s no real harm in doing that. But we have to be responsible also especially when the behavior becomes problematic. We have these gadgets and the internet already anyway, so we have to feel free on studying also, what is it all about.
Let’s take for example this girl right here. Her sister reported on Facebook that she had a seizure during their sleep early in the morning.
She had to go under an Electroencephalogram(EEG) to check any abnormalities.
At first, her sister thought that she was just doing a stretch when she woke up in the middle of the night. However, she noticed that it has been for 3 minutes already. Her sister was alerted the moment she asked for help already because she can’t move.
For now, the doctor told them to let her avoid from using gadgets. The sister posted what happened on Facebook not to be famous but to aware everybody especially adolescents like her age.
