Today many children spend a lot of time playing computer games and little time on sports. Why is it? Is it a positive or negative development?
Technology impacted the world greatly. With the advancement in technology, most of our young ones are interested in playing games on electronic gadgets instead of outdoor activities. Whether it is a negative or positive development is a matter of conjecture and need to be deliberated.
Computer plays an important role in the cognitive development of the child. While playing games on it, children learn many skills such as using these gadgets and how to type on them. Nowadays, most parents are working and living in a nuclear family. So due to stressful jobs and lack of time, they allow their young ones to play games on the computer instead of disturbing them when they come back home. In addition, Science has become so advanced that there is a computer game version of every sport, thus motivating children to avoid playing outdoor sports.
In my view, using a computer for a long time affects directly on eyes of children and their physical growth. This will increase many health issues and will strain our future generations. Additionally, if they do not play outside sports, it will turn them into introverts who lack adequate communication skills. Furthermore, there are many violent games on the computer like PubG, and by watching and playing them, kids start behaving violently with their elders and friends.
To conclude, Instead of giving computers the whole time to our youngers, elders can encourage them to play outside which keeps them physically fit and make them creative and enhance their communication skills by making new friends.
