The impression of parent/children relationship and the stimulus of digital gadgets on it, is molding the relationship and its outcome on the socio economic factor. Past researches, tell us about the amount of digital media use and the affect on a child’s negative behavior (Radesky, Schumacher & Zuckerman, 2015). Preference of using digital technology at home and the negative impacts on the society have been increased in a very short time.
Another factor is the usage of television and its impact on the children. Nowadays, children under the age of three most likely spend time in front of the television. Studies have been done to evaluate the mental development of kids in different age groups and the parental mental development with the kids IQ and maternal knowledge (Zimmerman & Christakis, 2005). American academy of pediatrics did a study, where they suggested that children of two or younger, should not be allowed to use any technological items, media handhelds devices, and any other media devices.
For this purpose, many studies have made efforts to get results and solve the issue. One research, as a cross sectional study was done, which gave the result that children from urban areas were mostly exposed to the technology items (Kabali et.al, 2015). Every kid had a device at an early age of 4. These kids were from a lower income families.
The influence of mobile devices and other items, has a large impact on the brought of a child. It also impacts the behavior of a child from its early age. In the past, a child at and age of 4 did not knew what a mobile looks like, and nowadays every kid knows it better than the elders. It also effects the behavior of a child, when he/she has to intract with the parents and other people. However, this is a social issue which should he resolved, in order to the betterment of society.
