Putting children in sports, clubs, involving them in reading, dancing, singing, or even drama, can help keep children from reaching the risk of becoming overweight and obese. Parents are responsible for their child’s health rate, so allowing them to partake in more activities benefits their child. Parents who buy their children video games are pushing their child to stay inside instead of pushing them to go outside and play. Playing outside for just one hour every day will make a difference in a child’s health. Staying inside only collects more calories in the body, rather than being outside and burning calories.
I am not trying to show parents that you are lousy at your jobs; I just want parents to take a more positive approach in their children playing video games. Children are able come home to a safe environment and keep them from going out and seizing them in trouble by playing video games. I am not saying that your children need to always be home and playing video games but your children are less likely to be in the wrong places at the wrong times. Children need to be ordered to balance the time spent on video games and other activities during their daily lives and parents need to take a more positive look on their children spending their time in these fantasy
In the United States in this day in age, technology has become a fighting force that parents and teachers both love and hate. I recently interviewed Cindy Moser about some of these problems and questions that concern technology and kids. When it comes to children right now, they are all engaged in some type of technology. Kids are getting phones at younger ages, they are able to watch more mature television shows before they are of age to watch, and with the easily accessible technology around them, actual human to human interacting has become a struggle to some children. However there are many benefits to the advancements of technology that we have made, the benefits are often accompanied by challenges.
Though, in most cases, the speed of fulfilling tasks accelerates with the help of technology, many people do not realize that technology negatively affects society, and its considerable development has complicated life in a number of different ways. Technology has also effects on relations with family. Busy with different devices, family members cannot have such friendly atmosphere as they used to in the past. Before the invention of these devices, family members would sit together around the table and play games together. However, since the invention of video games, those kinds of entertainment have changed to games played individually, and the impact of such games on family relations is apparent.
For example the child is becoming annoying to the parent; the parent will then give the child either a cellphone or a tablet so that the child will become distracted. By doing this time... ... middle of paper ... ...many benefits for us, but it is not really needed all the time. Maybe in some situations for people technology is needed every day in their lives. But the fact is that people don’t really need all these new gadgets, they didn’t have all of this kind of stuff back in the day, and they still mad it through. Education is being helped by technology and sometimes just giving the student the answer.
In today’s society, there are a number of factors that affect a child’s ability to learn. The media, for good and for bad, is the primary teacher of American youth. This environment reflects life itself, sometimes in a corrupt way, including the positive and heinous parts, along with the beautiful and hideous parts, as well as the charitable and violent parts. It is almost impossible to protect American youth from experiences reflecting the adult world when the media invades homes and becomes so much a part of everyday living. “American teenagers spend 31 hours a week watching television, 10 hours a week online, 4 hours a week reading magazines, and 17 hours a week listening to music” (Miss).
As humans have started to rely more on technology, children have begun to be even more reliant. Forms of technology such as laptops and cell phones are constantly being manufactured and developed for kids as young as five. As an example, Leapfrog manufactured some products for children that resembled the modern day tablet that adult’s use. With so much reliance on technology, parents, and other adults have raised concern on whether the exposure has a positive or negative effect on children. A positive effect of technology on children is that it actually prepares children for the adult world where so much technology is used.
They will stay up until like three or four in the morning and sleep until noon or one in the afternoon. Children do not understand the concept of the internet and how it can ruin their lives. They will not understand how to do certain things in the future. The internet affects children being social. They can talk to someone online, but they can not even hold a conversation with the kid that sits by them in class.
This affects the children’s mind because it is slowly making the child’s memory decrease so we now are relying on technology to remember everything for us. (DeLoatch) This affects the children physically because now no one is being active and all they are going to do is play video games. When kids aren’t active if affects their health and that affects their education because when the children are sick then they aren’t in class, then they don’t get the notes or work. Also video games affects how kids think and how they learn, so when Playing games or texting everyday affects the brain and how information in the brain gets processes. It doesn 't help their grades because no one is paying attention when the teachers are trying to teach or their work that they have to get done.
”Counting Chips and Chopsticks” by Elena Bodrova and Deborah J. Leong was featured in the May 2003 issue of the NAEYC’s Young Children. The article explores the conflict between children's play and meeting academic standards; more frequently, teachers are forced to limit playtime in order to teach essential skills to students; however because of limited imaginary play, increased academic demands of young children, and more realistic toys, children are almost unable to imagine. Although play has been proven to benefit children’s cognitive and social development, administrators do not consider it to be an important aspect of young children’s education. Because of this, preschool and kindergarten teachers are put in a challenging predicament;
