 Technology has served us well over the past many years. It has helped us grow in way which we would not have thought possible. It has helped us reach heights that we would have imagine we could. It has helped us grow in leaps and bounds. It has helped us broaden our horizons and explore new territories. All this because we had technology to aid us in all that we were doing. So nothing can be taken away from what technological advances have given us. The good it had brought about. But just like all other things there had to be two sides to it as well. And of late we see the ugly side of technology emerging. Especially when it comes to the kids.

What happened to old fashioned ways of playing?

Technology is having an adverse effect on the health of the kids these days. Because for the modern day child their games consist of temple run and candy crush. All the games that can be played on a mobile device. So they spend their whole day staring at a screen. Either they are watching cartons and movies or they are playing on their electronic devices. Gone are the days when children used to be excited about collecting money to go and dartboard for sale and pellet guns to have fun. Nowadays children are excited about collecting enough money to go and buy the new Xbox games that have been released. Because this is their main source of entertainment. They don’t know what it means to go out in the sun and have fun playing with friends. For them playing with friends is all about competing with each other on multiple player mode on their digital games.

Technology has invaded our lives so much that children don’t feel like stepping out of their rooms for any reason. It’s all in their fingertips. For example they can even darts soft tip for sale in Singapore if they want to. They don’t have to the need to go to a shop and look around. It’s just about clicking away on their electronic devices. So when they lead such a sedentary lifestyle its natural that they are going to end up falling sick more often than not. They don’t have the activity they need, they end up gaining weight and more problems later on in life. Staring at a screen for long periods of time is harmful to their eyes and can affect vision. No wonder we see so many little kids needing glasses these days. These are only some of the few adverse effects of allowing the children to be hooked onto mobile devices all day long. There are many more hidden adverse effects that we yet to figure out.
