4 Rules for Limiting the Negative Consequences of Technology on Children

We can set some rules to help #children manage this situation.

Here are a few suggestions.

  1. We need to set screen time for children and make them understand why they cannot be on their gadget for long hours.
  2. Children should know that #technology cannot replace human interactions. Therefore, they should be willing to get behind the screens and talk to real people.
  3. Children should be reminded that they need to seek only age-appropriate content on the internet as defined by their parents or guardians.
  4. They need to play outdoor with their peers, pick up hobbies and engage in other activities that help them build their social skills.

These rules are necessary for us to raise a generation of people who are tech-savvy and at the same time have great social skills to navigate the real world. What other rules would you like to add?
