  • Hi I am a student

    My neighbors are always on the WII or their iPads, iPods, and other technology devices and its not fair. The little girl she is just five years old and she hides the devices under her bed, in her closet and in other spots. I think we should limit the amount of time that children spend on electronics.

  • Yes they do

    Most kids spend time in front of a computer because it is all they know. If they were born in the 20th century than they would of gotten more play outside. Now, it is all screens . Most people are stopping that now so the problem is getting better and better.

  • Children are spending Too much time in front of screens.

    Some time in front of screens in fine. But children are spending too much time, which is not helping their social skills. Your child might be able to have really good conversations on a computer, but when it comes talking face to face this I where our society today is lacking.

  • Despite the educational value of such technology

    I feel that children spend too much time watch TV and playing on computers, I fear we are entering an era in which busy parents need an easy option to keep children entertained. As a working parent I understand the need to keep children happy when you arrive home from work and have to get dinner, washing etc done. But that doesn't mean they have to spend time watching rather than doing. Children need to be encouraged to use their imaginations and be creative, we are living in a world dominated by technology, but that doesn't mean it has to dominate our lives. Teach children to use it efficiently, but encourage them to experience using their imaginations and getting some good old fashioned fresh air into them. We don't want a society in 20 years where all everyone knows how to do is use a computer brilliantly, but lacks the social skills to communicate face to face.

  • Yes, kids are having too much screen time

    Kids need to be outside playing, burning off energy, and building muscles. If a kid comes home and sits playing video games then watches TV for the rest of the day, then the kid is missing out on physicial activity and - very often - the exercise of their imagination. I'm not totally against screen time, because my kids cooperatively play Minecraft and help the youngest one. But too much of a good (or neutral) thing is a bad thing.

  • It can be good, quit being dramatic PARENTS.

    I am a gamer myself, and the Parents and people in general who think that kids who play games are anti-social are just plain wrong. Kids on Social Media, PSN and Xbox live are constantly talking and playing with each other. Kids who play games could have more social interactions in a few days than people in the real world do in a week. Also, video games don't make people violent, plain and simple. Video games can actually release stress and tension, which help calm kids down.

  • It can be good, quit being dramatic.

    That is the most common question of parents, teachers, and basically everyone who is not a kid. In short, yes. It is more time than the people who ask the question did when they were kids, but it is not excessive. The average is about 6-8 hours in ages 5-16, but about 2 of those hours are spent at school, and ½ an hour is for communication. So 3-5 is spent on leisure. That is quite a bit, but the average in the 1990’s are was 3 hours total. So it is about the same, considering the fact that there were next to no electronics for education back then. It was all television and video games. So it is not that much of a difference from the 1990’s
    There is also the fact that a lot of social interaction happens while in front of a screen. Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat etc. is one such examples. Kids are constantly liking and commenting on somebody’s post, as well as chatting between each other and DMing each other. There is texting and talking on the phone. Kids are having social interactions and making friends while on a screen. So while they are spending excessive time in front of a screen, they are making friends and having social interaction in the process.
    There is also video games. On Xbox Live and PSN (which are services on the most popular video game consoles) they allow you to talk to people through a microphone, and you can send each other messages, as well as make friends in the process. You are constantly getting game invites and friend requests. So while kids do spend excessive time on screens, they have quite a bit of social interactions. Kids talk to each other, as well as older and younger people, which can help develop social skills in all kids. They will be able to communicate with people of all ages.
    There is also the argument that kids who play video games, especially stuff like Call of Duty, GTA, and Dark Souls, make kids violent. Based on studies as well as personal experience, this is completely false. The truth is that video games can help kids and people alleviate stress and release tension. Despite what violent stuff kids do in video games, they do not make kids violent. It could be argued that the opposite is true.
    So, in conclusion, kids do spend a lot of time in front of screens, that is not a bad thing. They have a lot of social interactions, learn social skills, as well as how to communicate with others of all ages. They also It also helps release tension in kids, and does not make them violent.

  • Never ever ever!

    We are just fine from screens I've on a coputer for 4 hours and I've been fine and tired. You should time your breaks if you need them so that way you won't tempted to go on the computer. Being on screens a lot of the day you will be fine. Trust me.

  • Children can learn from it!

    Children can learn from it! If you have your children doing IXL, Mathletics, and other educational websites. You could check their history from doing it, and if they did not lie, They could have free time. Did you know gaming on electronic devices actually made it so THAT IT MAKES CHILDREN GET IN BETTER COLLAGES

  • Preparing for life

    People get easily scared of technology, but, regardless of how people feel about it, 'being in front of a screen' is how people are today, and will be in the foreseeable future. There's nothing particularly bad or good about the use of technology today, but it does, and will, certainly make people more comfortable.
