Technology Hits Home by Michelle Bowerman

Technology has the potential to isolate children from their surroundings and can act as a blockade for human interaction.

Given no limit or restriction on usage, children are at risk of becoming consumed by the technology they are engaging.

Children can become too comfortable in their isolation resulting in a lack of social skills and need to develop relationships with people around them.

Children may become depressed because the idea of socializing has become a foreign concept due to excessive technology use, which often leads to poor eating habits affiliated with boredom or stress.
A child's depression and poor eating habits often go hand in hand when there is an unhealthy balance of technology usage.
Limiting technology will allow children to get healthy by engaging in physical activity and provide the opportunity to develop proper social skills that build relationships.
