Children and the Influence of Technology Jenny Downey

Technology is very prominent in the lives of young children.

It is frequently used by parents to pacify bored children. Parents may supply their children with entertainment in the form of a phone, tablet, or computer.

Instead of handing children a device, they should be encouraged to be active.

Children can find non-technological, interactive activities both outdoors and indoors.

Higher levels of physical activities can encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy lifestyles can lead to a reduced rate of childhood obesity, a steadily growing epidemic.

Encouraging physical activity can be a great opportunity for family bonding experiences.
