10 reasons not to give your kid your smartphone

Don' be the parent who uses your smartphone as a Pacifier!!!

Back when / was a kid, kids didn't have smartphones. Actually nobody had smartphone because it was 1990 and my parents made me entertain my self with things like "A Radio" or i made fun playing with them. or cricket.

These days, it seems like everywhere i look there's a toddler playing with his mom's or dad's smartphone- doping it ,drooling on it, putting it in there mouth, And parents reasoning seems to be something like, "Well, that's one way to shut them up."But I'm here to tell you(And i shouldn't have to ): giving your child smartphone is a terrible, terrible idea. Here's why :

It Cost More then 7,000 RS

I don't know about you, but if I'd asked my parents at age 4, to let me play with a device that cost even RS 3,000 ,They'd Have laughed in my face. And yeah, While i know you're not playing (At least) 7,000 RS for your phone thanks to carrier-subsidized pricing. you will be when your kids drop it and you have to replace it before your contact runs out.

Kids have developing motor skills

Your smartphone is made of glass and metal. Mostly glass. You barely keep from dropping it, So you there-year-old ? definitely going to drop it.

They''ll become dependent

You know how you're not supposed to give kids pacifiers all the times to shut them up, because then they'll become dependent on there pacifier ? Same thing with smartphones. And, well, sometime you're going to want to actually use your smartphones. So good luck with that!

They Won't Sleep

Screens-all screens, even tiny smartphone screen - can disrupt your sleep. And kids need sleep. A lot of sleep . Because they're growing, and also because they become obnoxious little jerks when they haven't sleep enough.

They become Social outcast

or maybe not, if every other child they interact with also gets to use there parents' smartphones from an early age. Seriously, thought, face-to-face social interaction is something your child should be learning now, while it's still acceptable to be a socially awkward fool.

Limited creativity

Smartphones turn us into consumers, not creators. remember when you were a kid and you had to use your imagination ?? "What is imagination ?" -Kids today.

Your kids will never see the sun

My parents totally used to do that thing where they wouldn't let me watch TV because i should "go outside and get some fresh air". Well that saddest thing ever i watching your kid go outside ... while glued to a smartphone.

Smartphones are distracting

You usually give your kid your smartphone to distract them , right ? Because you're wattling in line, they're getting bored, and they start fussing. Well, there's a problem here: if you always give your kid a distracting object when they start getting bored, how will they ever learn to deal with boredom ?

Three Words: In. App. Purchases.

Yes, Google will refund unauthorized in app purchases made by your kids. but wattling for a refund is not same as never having that money leave your account in the first place.

They'll eventually want there own 

LOL, sorry kid. Maybe when you're 18. And you can buy it yourself.

And one reason you're going to ignore all this and give it to them anyway...

Because there's nothing like the sweet, sweet silence of a toddler entranced by YouTube videos.
