Screen Dependency Disorder Is Real, and It Damages Your Child’s Brain

218

More and more computers and phones are being used all over the world. Our eyes are not designed to withstand the load that we do with the screens of phones. The tiny letters and the large number of small cubes, the overwhelming light, destroys our eyesight. Our children suffer most from this.

However, “screen time” has been found to cause problems for young children.Studies have shown that computer games and mobile phone applications lead to addiction and children spend most of their time there damaging their eyes.

Cerebral palsy in young people has not yet increased, so they are prone to changes in structure and network that can worsen nerve progression and cause problems such as:

Habit from the internet

Aggressive behavior from web games

Addiction to Facebook

Aggressive Internet search

Compulsive internet use

Phone neck problems

Risky use of the web

Use of neurotic computer games

Patronage for interpersonal organization pages

The research paper by therapist Dr. Arik Sigman, distributed in the Journal of the International Society for Child Neurology, characterizes the habit as a term that is progressively used to display the developmental number of young people participating in various screen exercises in a dependent, cumbersome manner.

The following side effects show that time spent on screen contributes:

Loss of external interests

Indication of withdrawal

Depression from the real world

Bad effects on eyesight and health

Continuation regardless of negative outcomes

A recent report distributed in Behavior (Basel) showed that 12 percent of young American gamers before they become adults are “obsessive video gamers”.

Psychotherapist Dr. George Lynn goes on to claim that 80% of his patients’ problems are caused by inappropriate games, some video on the Internet or too much use of life on the Internet.

Professional and early education specialist in family life and child development, Clodeta Avellino-Thanduk, clarifies that the problem with the screen of phones and computers can cause side effects, such as weight gain, sleep disturbance, back pain, vision problems, cerebral pains, nervousness, deceptive nature and feelings of guilt.

Aside from using devices, caregivers need to figure out how to get positive and keep their children happy and healthy, improve their language and social skills, as well as polite learning.

Children should be encouraged to develop some sort of hobby for example drawing, rather than playing on their tablets and mobile phones. Children need to develop naturally, not to damage their eyes or their bodies.
