Should children be allowed to use mobile phone?

(Tabinda Hussain, Karachi)

" SHOULD CHILDREN BE ALLOWED TO OWN AND HANDLE MOBILE PHONES  AT YOUNG AGE?"
Technological developments have improved our lives. Today, we can talk or video chat with anyone across the globe with the aid of a cell phone, only by moving our fingers. Mobile phones are also available in various shapes and sizes with varying technological requirements and are used for a range of purposes, such as voice communication, video chatting, text messaging or SMS, multimedia messaging.

But, in my opinion I think mobile phones has a negative impact on youngster life. Kids of today grow up in a world of radio-frequency that has never existed before in human history. Mobile phone and mobile phone masts emit radiation that can have adverse effects on children. Many of them do include:
1) WASTE OF TIME:
People of the day are also getting addicted to mobiles. Also, if we don't have to browse the net on the computer, we play games that make a total addict. People became dumber as mobile phones became smarter

2) SLEEP DISRUPTION
Kids can stay up late talking to friends, playing games or browsing through social media, which induces tiredness and restlessness over a period of time. Sleep also disrupts academic activity, as children are too tired to concentrate on what is learned at kindergarten. This then has a domino effect that spreads through all the paths of their existence.

3) HEALTH HAZZARDS
Kids consume over 60 percent of the brain radiation as compared to adults. The thinner skin, tissues, and bones of their brains allow them to absorb the radiation twice as much as the adult ones. Their nervous system is evolving making them more vulnerable to this carcinogen, Excessive screen time can lead to digital eyestrain, which may involve burning, itching or tired eyes.

4) EFFECT ON HOBBIES AND ACADEMICS:
Children are addicted to cell phones as are teenagers. All the time they play sports, chat and talk on their cell phone with their families. The smartphone's effect on academic children can be very clear. Children cut down on the time spent on homework. Exam outcomes from using their smartphones long into the night get suffered due to inadequate planning or fatigue. Even once-loved interests could not be considered worth following any more.

5) AGGRESIVE BEHAVIOUR AND EFFECTS OF SMARTPHONES ON FAMILY:
Cell phones keep the brain constantly busy without any rest, children seem to get more distracting. Even at regular conversations they seem to become more aggressive and frustrated. In turn, this is hampering their social life. The worst case is that children all avoid working together with the family. Children can feel the overwhelming need to search for messages. If they stay away from their mobile for some amount of time, they become irritable.

CONCLUSION
Cell phones have introduced a whole new generation of technologies and, in terms of connectivity, they make life more comfortable. Nonetheless, the adverse effects of mobile phones and their threats cause many risky and unsafe circumstances to arise. Cell phones cause brain damage, auto crashes and become school disruptions. In top of this, they also face major environmental risks. Our world is more important when it comes to comparing the health of ourselves and our world to convenience. We have proven our argument with these reasons that mobile phones do more harm than healthy.
