Save your kids and yourself for being a slave of smartphone
We are 7.2 billion and I think most of us have the smartphone in our pocket. As we are progressing we think that smartphone is helping us for being smart. Yes!! I’m not denying that fact too. This is our today’s demand every after single step we feel its requirement. More than our partner we spend our time with this. We keep on updating our self about current affairs, news, fluctuating rates of stocks, I mean to everything from just a single phone. How amazing is this, whenever and whatever I want to know is just one click away from it.
Imagine, that you are walking to the roadside and someone steals your phone from your pocket and after sometimes you realized your missing phone. I can understand that feeling very well, at that moment you’ll feel like you’ve been lost in that crowded place. Suddenly your happiest mood turns to your worst mood and you’ll be panic like you’ve lost your family member in a fair. And after some time, you’ll start realizing that you even can’t live without it and all your important work will come at that moment only. I know this feeling is really common and happens to almost everyone.
The need for smart is really high but is it good to make your kids addicted like you are addicting this time badly.
I saw so many examples of addiction in my surrounding. A kid who’s crying for not having food and the mother is trying to feed him forcefully. And after too many failed attempts, she went to the room immediately and pick a phone and play a cartoon video. Seeing this kid started feeling good and start having food. From there it all started. What we are doing, we are soothing their mind with all these digital pieces of stuff, we are feeding a message that food is equal to phone and after sometimes it will come to his demand and later on its habit.
As I remember, when the phone comes to this world they have very less memory so we hardly feed more than 100 contacts. If we want to feed another number then we have to feed in our mind only so somehow it doesn’t affect on our memory. But today’s scenario is like that mobile phone memory is inversely proportional to our brain memory.
While we are leaving home for going outside then we never ever forgot keeping the phone but we forget to have our wallet our important document, spare keys and sometimes we even forgot to wear pants. At a worst case if you forgot to have your mobile phone then immediately your wife/husband or your kids will memorize you. This much you and your surrounding are addicted to that device.
Ok, now you are in your workplace and your colleagues are talking to you and you are also responding to them very well but by having the phone in your hands. Do it by yourself talking to your colleagues by having the phone and without having it in your hands. You’ll feel some other feelings more attachment, more confidence, and a better communication.
If I talk about kids then giving them the phone at an early age is good but that should be in a controlled way. Controlled way means that as a parent you yourself decide the time for the phone after that say no for the phone. Never give the phone to them when they are going to play in the playground, on the dining table, on school time, on family time and you yourself never show that the phone is much important to them.
we call our phone as a smartphone because it works for us according to our requirement and gives information about almost everything but think, behind a smartphone, there is always a smart mind. So use it, take much work from it but do not be the slave of it. Give time to your family, friend, and surrounding and also spend some alone time with yourself alone means you with your inner peace, not with your smartphone.
