Technology has become an important part of our daily routine. We get all different types of news whether it’s through websites or digital newspapers. We pay bills, manage our relationships, send and receive mail, and find information all over the Internet. All thanks to new improvements in technology, it has become the biggest revolution in human history. Every year technology keeps improving, it started out with very small and fat televisions that turned into 3D curved 72in flat televisions. It has come to the point where we start thinking if it will benefit our kids or not. Nowadays it is almost impossible to keep your child away from the latest technologies and the information. Most parents think that there is nothing they can do about it and they should just let the kid do whatever he/she wants to do. However, we must understand that we should have control over our technologies and not the other way around. The group of people that are impacted the most in this case are children and teenagers because their brains are young and impressionable, their thinking and opinions can be easily molded. There may be many benefits of technologies but the side affects are greater. Technology without a doubt impacts the way children and teenagers think, act, talk, make decisions, and forms their approach to life.
