You Shouldn’t Hand A Smartphone to Your Children!

10 Reasons You Shouldn’t Hand A Smartphone to Your Children:

Technology has done a lot to make our lives easier and more efficient. Yet as a parent, you ought to be concerned about the impact that devices such as smartphones can have on your child. At a time when it is becoming commonplace for kids to have their own mobile device, shouldn’t you be worried about what negative impact a smartphone could have on your child’s growth?

1.They alter the parent-child relationship

Even while smartphones can be convenient, they alter the bonding that is supposed to exist between a parent and child. The connectivity attached with smartphone use cannot be the same as the genuine connection which the parent and child are meant to have. Children are still passing through a period of growth, and you need to establish your relationship with them. With smartphones, you have speed and instant answers available; yet this could lead to your kids making bad choices in the long run.

2. It limits their creative minds

With easy access through a smartphone to a majority of their play, kids now have a platform to be bombarded with various exciting games. These games limit their creativity and imaginations and slow their motor and optical sensory development.

3. It causes them to get less sleep

According to this study, a smartphone in the bedroom can bring about significantly less sleep, later bedtimes, and more fatigue. Your child needs to be getting plenty of sleep and have his brain rested for the next day’s activities. A smartphone certainly wouldn’t help him attain that.

4. It doesn’t give kids the time to reflect or learn about the consequences of their actions

Imagine a kid having a conversation on a chat site and things go wrong. “I wish you lose your life” is uttered at him. Even perfectly nice kids would spontaneously react by saying, “I wish you lose your life too.’” This happens because the child is not offered the opportunity to reflect on the impact and the negativity of their actions or what they say. With a smartphone, things happen fast.

5. It impedes their ability to learn

According to researchers, a smartphone is detrimental to a child’s social-economic development as it diverts a child’s attention. According to the findings, the use of interactive screen time on such devices could also impair a child’s development of the skills needed for math and science.

6. It causes an addiction

It jeopardizes the child’s overall development. By engaging them in so many activities, a smartphone could become a source for an addiction. This kind of addiction engages their minds and captivates them for a long time, even to adulthood.

7. It has a negative impact on your child’s mental health

According to experts, amongst the causes of depression and anorexia in kids is the use of the smartphone and connection to the internet. Since through it kids are bullied and often unsupervised, there is a negative impact on their mental health.

8. It indirectly causes obesity

Too much time spent on smartphones also affects the physical health of your kids. With a smartphone, your child is subjected to remaining at a particular spot for hours. Such technology overuse is now a factor causing obesity.

9. It causes behavioral problems

Spending more than two hours per day on a smartphone is enough to cause emotional and social problems. Accordingly, exposure to the games available on smartphone apps links children to an increased risk of attention problems.

10. It desensitizes children to violence

Through the smartphone, kids are exposed to violence in games and through cyberbullying on chat sites. This desensitizes children and prompts them to accept that violent behavior is simply a normal way to solve problems.

What’s the Right Age for a Child to Get a Smartphone?

NOT long ago, many parents wondered at what age they should give their child full access to the car keys. Nowadays, parents face a trickier question: At what age should a child own a smartphone?

The smartphone, after all, is the key to unfettered access to the internet and the many benefits and dangers that come with it. But unlike driving a car, which is legal in some states starting at the age of 16, there is no legal guideline for a parent to determine when a child may be ready for a smartphone.


If you think your kids’ technological savvy is greater than their ability to use it wisely, pay attention to the gap. You may need to say, “No, not yet.” But

Here are some questions to consider:


  •         Do your kids show a sense of responsibility, such as letting you know when they leave the house? Do they show up when they say they will?
  •         Do your kids tend to lose things, such as backpacks or homework folders? If so, expect they might lose an (expensive!) phone, too.
  •         Do your kids need to be in touch for safety reasons?
  •         Would having easy access to friends benefit them for social reasons?
  •         Do you think they’ll use cell phones responsibly — for example, not texting during class or disturbing others with their phone conversations?
  •         Can they adhere to limits you set for minutes talked and apps downloaded?
  •         Will they use text, photo, and video functions responsibly and not to embarrass or harass others?

Protect Your Smartphone from a Virus or Attack

You probably already know how important it is to protect your Smartphone from viruses. Protect your Smartphone with anti-virus software. Your phone’s app store may offer free anti-virus software.

  1. Put a PIN or password on your Smartphone  and keep it locked when it’s not in use. Your phone may also have a lock pattern feature or facial-recognition lock.
  2. Stay away from suspicious websites when browsing the Internet on your phone. Viruses can be installed on your phone through malicious websites.
  3. Encrypt the files and data stored on the phone.
  4. Avoid connecting your phone to unsecured wireless networks. These networks don’t need a password to join, so anyone can connect to your device and infect it with a virus without you knowing about it.
  5. Download an app or document only if it comes from a trustworthy source, such as your phone’s app store. Downloading apps from third-party websites may put your phone at risk.
