One time when I was playing with my 4 years old kid in a bedroom, I went out to the dining room only to take a drink and planned to go back inside the room after that. Suddenly my daughter emerged from the bedroom to hand me my handphone which was left in there. It struck me how she thought I had to bring my cell phone anywhere with me even inside the house. I knew I was very dependent on my smartphone, but at that moment I realized I was extremely clinging with this thing. Because I spent too much time using my mobile phone, she also wanted to play with it. Although parents and kids can benefit from using gadgets, there are also drawbacks to avoid. In this post, I would like to discuss the positive and negative effects of screen time, and how to reduce it.
