India
January 18, 2018 2:15am CST
I think we can call the smartphone a Toy as well as it have almost everything which is better then a toy. And you must have seen many parents handover there kids there smartphone and kids feel so happy at that. Although i don't think its a good thing but most of the parents are doing it these days. What are your views about it? Is smartphone the today's toy?

@thesupersingh I feel a bit sad that children are wanting gadgets rather than real toys. There are so many cool toys out there where kids can use their imaginations. But phones or pretty much anything with a screen seems more appealing to them.

@VivaLaDani13 Parents + peer pressure Both ruin it. Peer pressure can be very damaging but instead of teaching their kids to stand up against it, parents buy them stuff Expensive dresses for cool factor WRONG!!! Body shaming New gadgets New toys Latest fashion updating Bullying is so much worse because at home parents and at school teachers instead of encouraging different personalities, likes dislikes; they themselve give into peer pressure to confifm to what is "acceptable". That is where the first complacent act to bullying happens. Rest is history!

@VivaLaDani13 If they just bothed enough bullying can be eliminated to a large extent. First teach their kids to just be and not change to suit otherz needs

My view is they are idiots! There! They are making their kids vulnerable. Making their kids materialistic. Then when these kids grow up and value money over their parents then these same parents will cry. To these parents, I want to say that dont blame the kids when you gave them wrong lessons. Kids are doing exactly what they were taught which was value these gadgets.

That's very well said Dj. Kids shouldn't be provided with mobile phones at that lesser age

@thesupersingh And internet access should be limited for kids because there are paedophile rings running online.

I don't encourage my grandkids to play with my smartphone...yet in desperation to entertain them when waiting for an appointment the phone has proved to keep them occupied.

Yes I see that in the church. Parents give their smartphones so their kids won't get bored while in church. They have many games to play
