Technology is an important mode of communication for many children, however, it can affect child development. Many children are influenced by technology such as media, internet, movies, etc. Now many children rely on technology and seen technology advance them, but technology does have harmful effects on them. They are using technology devices every day, and they are beginning to lose interest themselves from family or friends from their communication skills. Also, their behaviors begin to change by technology, and they start having mental health problems.
As the World progresses, technology has always been a part of it, if not ahead. I for one, have grown up in a time where the use of technology has been intertwined in the society. Since technological advancements began a while ago, the newer generation of children has access to it with ease than those who came before them. This then does arise some concerns about the effect of technology on younger generations. Just like with other controversial topics, there are some negative sides to technology as well as positive sides.
There has been a negative effect that teenager’s brain goes through and it does not let them think creatively and miss their brains up. Technology can go into positive and negative effect, but one thing that teenagers and parents cannot do is to stop using it for a long time. They get obsessed with it and you cannot get rid of these devices. Technology negatively affects brain development in children because usage affects their learning, and therefore technology use should be limited during children’s formative years. Students have their attention on phones and computers when they are at school.
But, it also changed daily lives and technology affects the memories towards short-term and long-terms.

Technology as Viable Reward for Children Behavior Coely Lim Sy Yee B1401491 Department of Psychology PSY113 Ms. Sybella Ng Mr. Yap Wai Meng The fact that we are currently living in a technological era is evident from the devices that we possess, including but not limited to our smartphones and tablets. Regardless of our perceptions of technology, it is undeniable that technology has revolutionized the world we know of. As much as we would like to agree or disagree, the reality of life is that technology has affected us greatly to the point of being integrated into our daily lives. It has also especially influenced and changed the way of Gen-Y’s mentality specifically young children. Young children who utilize these modern gadgets
have an important role to play with technology. The prevalence of technology drastically affects many areas of society in positive ways, including education. Modern-day students not only have computers to help them with their schoolwork, they also use the Internet for research. Through new technology, we gain new cures for diseases, new healthy alternatives for eating, and new forms of communication. Technology has simplified our lives but has also harmed the lives of young children.
According to Gavin (2013), technology moves at a rapid pace, and can be hard to keep up with at times. The current study is the effects of exposure to technology on young children. As we become increasingly more reliant and absorbed in technology, it is no surprise that today’s children have become avid users as well (Hatch, 2011). Children at the age of three or four already have tablets, smart phones, and others; they could easily attain technologies and would even demand for one. As it makes easier for us, technology has both positive and negative impacts especially on young children.
INTRODUCTION “Our children’s digital lives are turning them into much different creature from us - and not necessarily for the better” (Dalton Conley, Time Magazine). Today , technology surrounds us. It has replaced man with machines, which made the working process more easier, accessible and user friendly. It has advanced with years and changed the way we live, the way we shop, the way we communicate, the way we travel, the way we learn and many other changes in our lives that is brought by the continuous progress in the development of technology. Children are mostly surrounded by technology at home and at school so much that their life cannot function without it.
I think that it is obvious that the impact of the technology in young people’s lives is ultimately a damaging one should the young person use the technology to an access and not spend their time doing other things also as well as using their computers. Thank you, readers I will be back next week with, “The impacts of not getting a wide variety of nutrients in your
While forgetting things that can be more important than that.” Hard-wired for high speed, today’s young are entering school struggling with self-regulation and attention skills necessary for learning, eventually becoming significant behavior management problems for teachers in the classroom (Rowan, 2013).I agree that technology hasn’t been a good impact for students, it makes their way of behaving at home and school or college change and they make it even harder for teachers finding ways of dealing with them. Technology can be harm on children 's health. Because if they spend most of their time in technology satisfy themselves, in the end, they suffer from stress and anxiety and they will no longer be able to do other important works. Parents should be the ones responsible for their children’s behavior because they’re
