With everything being a few clicks away there is no striving. Reduced personal interaction, being able to work from home can have a negative effect. Most people need some form of social interaction in their daily lives and if that is taken away we are left feeling isolated and unhappy. Youngsters are now more reliant on technology and a good percent have now become addicted to online gaming which in turn has made them more withdrawn from social activities. Bullying has seen an increase as kids are now able to hide behind social media and bully peers after school hours.
The technology is growing daily and rapidly, what was once a luxury for some, today are everyday accessories for most. The use of new technologies has led to a radical change in the daily lives of our children and youth. The reality they live is very different from some decades ago and this makes technological devices used almost automatically from an early age .Video games, Internet, television and technological devices such as phones, or tablet computers have become almost indispensable tools in their daily lives. TV is usually associated with negative effects especially for children because they spend a lot of time watching TV for hours without doing anything productive, also some adults but less because majority of adults work. In contrast, tablets or iPads have the option of downloading entertainment applications at the same time are educational, so that children are not only visually entertain, but also learn and actively interact.
With each passing day of our lives we are faced with the realization that this world is ever shrinking. We encounter new neighbors from other countries, colleagues who speak more than one language, and friends of our children come from various walks of life and far away countries. It is evident that our own children need to be prepared for this global society in which they will travel as young adults sooner than we care to imagine. As a parent of three children and an educator of thousands I live this realization every day! I search for ways in which I can bring to my family not only knowledge of other lands where people look, live, sound and eat differently but also ways in which I can help them communicate with people from around the world.
(Koebler)Students are spending countless hours being active rather than spending time on their phones. Sports like basketball, baseball, football, wrestling, volleyball, tennis, swimming, and soccer are taking over households across the country, causing teens to be more active within the community helping each other and creating a sense of purpose. Seconds turn into minutes, minutes turn into hours and hours turn into years , time is being wasted by playing a sports.

In this materialistic age, it is very common that both parents go to work. According to the statistics showed, “the proportion of mothers who were employed increased from 55% in 1991, to 56% in 1996, 59% in 2001, 63% in 2006 and 65% in 2011.” (Baxter) Once, after parents come back home after work, they find the house in a chaos, then they will start to complain that their children do not help them to do housework. Although childhood should be a period of relative freedom, but the parents should teach children from an early age to learn to do housework because there are many advantages that children can learn from housework. Nevertheless, there are some pros and cons when children help with household tasks since they are young, but I believe that the pros are more than the cons.
Throughout the years I have met other people that also can relate to being the first generation to migrate to a new country. I believe that being a first-generation immigrant family is its own subculture within a culture. Structure can be defined as the pattered arrangements that influence the choices and opportunities available to us (quote). My own perspective of how structure altered my view on society was how hardworking my parents were, yet money was always tight as my older sister and I were growing up. Growing up my sister and I often felt alienated because we didn’t always get to do all the cool stuff other kids our age were doing.
‘The lazy generation’, is what the older generation would call us these days. Why? Because we could not bear a day without gadgets in our hands, technologically updated items at the end of our fingers. Some use it for work and studies purposes, and many misused and misinterprets the functions of a gadget. These “misusing gadgets” people, we often see them walking whilst reading something on their smartphones, wasting half of their day browsing the Internet on computers and they don’t even realize that – they are just wasting their times.
Presently this video based production are strongest medium to communicate with the audience Since delay is an inherent feature of all forms of video productions. During any video projects it has created problems for employees because video production projects rarely start or end up on time. Due to this employees have to do extra hours, they have less or no social life, and not enough time for family. Research on work–familyconflict has found that this variable influences a number of outcomes including psychological distress, job satisfaction, organization commitment, turnover, and life satisfaction (Frone, Russell, & Cooper, 1992; Higgins, Duxbury, & Irving, 1992; O’Driscoll, Ilgen, & Hildreth, 1992; Parasuraman, Greenhaus, Rabinowitz, Bedeian, & Mossholder 1989).

This leads individuals who spend long hours on their smartphones to no longer consume food, increase their fitness routine, throw up their diet, or even eating tiny portions of a meal. In fact, the media portrays a misleading perception on model images because majority of those pictures are unrealistic due to photoshop. Another physical ability that smartphones have created a negative impact to is – vision. Eye problems have occurred rapidly from the constant starring at a screen, including, when you lay in bed at night and the room is dark it develops a squint in your eyes while looking onto the mobile screen because the screen is bright and the environment is
Doctors found that he was talking to himself in a programming language (Pfaffenberg). Computer dependency is becoming more and more common and steadily increasing as time goes on. It has basically become our lifeline of modern generation. We use computers in our everyday lives and routines, not realizing it takes over our lives.
