Mobile effects on children

Basic facts

  • We even consider of giving a mobile phone to our teen for security purposes?
We know its a sound decision, but we should know the  adverse effects of mobile phones on teenagers and young children. We are covering this topic as requested by one of our followers to know the adverse effects from radiation emitted by mobile phones. Few of the adverse effects are:
Health & brain hazard:

The repercussion of radiations from the mobile phones could have on the brain activity. The possible health hazards of mobile phones for children are as follows:

  • Non-Malignant ( घातक) Tumors: Lot of studies have shown that children who use mobile phones have a possibility of developing non-malignant tumor in the brain and ear.
  • Cancer: Do you know that even WHO has classified cell phone radiation as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans’ reason is that children absorb more than 60 percent of the radiation into the brain than adults. Their brain’s thinner skin, tissues, and bones allow them to absorb the radiation twice than the grown-ups. Their developing nervous system makes them more vulnerable to this ‘carcinogen (which creates cancer)’.
  • Texting problem: We all know that most mobile users are totally addicted to texting and excess messaging can cause pain in the hands, back and neck due to poor posture plus it can also lead to impaired vision and even arthritis down the line.

Academic suffering: 
  • Children are addicted to mobile phones either games or texting and talking to their friends when parents are not around.
  • So in free time also instead of taking rest they spend time on mobile phones only. with this addiction of mobile phone, chat, games in mind they even delay or miss the lesson taught and fall behind the other students.
  • In many cases it has been seen that they start hiding phones and even carry phones in washrooms.

Inappropriate Behavior with parents and teachers:
  • Use of cell phones can lead children to engage in inappropriate behaviors as they feel parents are making them away from games and friends.
  • It is in daily news that children are prone to texting and sending inappropriate pictures as it is easily available on net.
  • Even in many cases it has been noticed that children start sending their private photos as they are not aware of vulnerability of internet they using.
  • Keep in mind that children can also access pornographic sites from their multimedia devices because they are spending most of the time on mobile phones.

Ethics failure
  • Students of any age can be seen indulge in exam malpractices and cheating during the internal and external examinations.
  • Like in late 90's some make use of calculator this generation uses mobile phones and in many legal cases they were caught sending objective answers to those in the examination hall.
  • So the career is also at stake.
Don't let your children fall prey of excess use of technology at early age. Teach them and keep eyes on every time they pick the mobile.
