Screen Addiction


In China, a child’s addiction to screens is now considered to be a clinical disorder requiring therapy. Over here, evidence would seem to also indicate that long periods peering at screens has negative effects on children in terms of health—not spending time outside playing; behavior—violent games leading to violent acts and a lack of interaction with peers; creativity—not engaging in hobbies, using their imaginations or observing the world around them.

But there’s a counter argument too. Technology, when used correctly can be enriching and exciting providing access to information, ways to communicate and ways to be creative. And children are just doing what they’ve always done—find ways to do their own thing.
