Frankly speaking, many hi-so children may have been much impressed with a variety of new technologies that quickly come up in the IT world. Deeply looking two sides of the same coin, it seems to have a lot of new technologies' merits in support of easiness to access new information, availability in online working connection, comfortability of connecting people, potentially aiding people to shine ongoing new creation out to the world of IT, and so on. That would be fine and positive.
Looking another side of the same coin, it can be negative impacts to children as well especially uprooted children. The fact is that most children waste a lot of valuable time with playing games on their cell phones and computers more than spending time with their families. Obviously, when they spend time getting in touch with new technologies (such as cell phone, small computer, game player, and so on), they would face following negative impacts which will go out to harm them unconsciously such as poor human interaction, lack of spending-life skill, poor study result, etc. That are the facts that you can see in daily life. I do believe it’s solvable even it is problematic.
These serious problems of children in the period of IT remind me of the majesty the king’s advice on the philosophy of SELF-SUFFICIENCY. Significantly, self sufficiency philosophy can always be applied in everything as the point of new technologies addiction of children. Just know the word ENOUGH, everything will be better.
According to the point of Buddhist view on spending life in the IT world, Buddhism specially teaches people to have a good awakening, right view, and right action (the eightfold path or middle way) to lead the life go to the better future. It is also can be applied to use for developing the quality of life to real well-being. With linking these three vital Buddhist teachings to progress of new technologies, parents easily can keep their children in control, if they (parents or those who they live with) always teach their children to have a good sense of awareness, right concentration and wisdom. I mean they finally can be away from those new technologies that can be negatively affected to your children.
Certainly, it doesn't mean that they must get far away from those new technologies, but it means that they must consume them appropriately (not too much). That's the point. I'm amazed by many creative men who can make a lot of money to support their families by creating new things and shining out abilities they have on the internet in particular YOUTUBE. As you know that YOUTUBE is an entertaining channel for all people around the world that’s easily accessible to go in. I think those creative young people (children) should be gotten an admiration from general public for the long-term progress in their future.
However, new technologies are still necessary to all people around the world. It has both positive and negative ways in itself. I don’t worry about adults those who consume them usefully, but children must be under parents’ care closely. If they are far away from their parents, it possibly can bring a big problem back to families as the case of COOKIE RUN which is a popular game on cell phone.
Pick them up and give them a raise!
