Smartphones and Younger Generation
In 2011, Tim Pike discussed the increasing amount of younger generation using smartphones nowadays in the article “How smartphones technology affects society.” (Pike, 2011). Pike wrote: “The advantage of a smartphone is the advent of fastest connection and a transfer speed, which means; potentially children can always be instantly connected”. In other words, smartphones help parents be aware of what children do, tighten the connection between parents and children, and increase their safeness wherever they are. Personally, I disagree with the author’s point that with the common of smartphones using, children could be safer with a smartphone and could be connected immediately.
It is true to say that smartphones help people communicate instantly, no matter where you are. However, it is not necessary for a child to own a smartphone. In fact, it is not safe at all to have a child separated from their parents, ...view middle of the document...

I always feel uncomfortable when I see him play with his phone, and don’t pay attention on anything around him. Any time except school time, he sticks his eyes on smartphones and doesn’t talk to anyone sitting around him. His eyes are affected by serious myopia. Children learn best from real-world experiences and interactions, but not in front of a screen-based device, to explore the world using their sense, not the world on network device. That is, children are better to learn from other humans, not from animated displays.
Lots of parents allow their kids to carry and use smartphones, however, there are some bad effects of smartphones on kids using during their young age. First, games and applications on smartphones, which are designed for kids, discourage them on interacting with real people, and with other kids around them. Next, using a smartphones will weaken children’s eye sight. Third, smartphones can impact brain development, by teaching them to switch from one topic to the other quickly with only a click. Therefore, it will be hard for them to focus and concentrate on just one big topic of information when they’re put in that situation. Last, online and video games can make children spend hours playing on smartphones, discourage them to getting up from their sit to go outside and play, then they will get overweight and physical problem because of the lack of exercises on growing age.
In summary, I totally disagree with the author that children should have a smartphone to be safer and be connected to their parents. It is because there is no need for a child to use smartphone, besides too many negative influences of smartphones on child’s health and development. In addition, the children need to be exposed to the real world environment to foster a healthy growth. And lastly, the smartphone tend to disconnected the relationship between parents and children while helping them staying connect to the rest of the world. Children should be accompanied by the adult to ensure their safety rather resting it on a smartphone device.
