Child gadget addiction is worsening with time around the world including in Bangladesh. Children in the country no longer want to interact with others because they are always glued to their gadgets such as phones, tablets, and games. A lot of young children will not calm down and behave themselves until they are allowed to use or given gadgets. Some parents and caregivers, on the other hand, have become dependant on these devices to calm and keep children company when they are busy, or do not want children to disturb them. This is a significant concern because it comes with many negative effects.
Other than the health complications that ensue from using smartphones and tablets for too long, which are expected to have longer term impact on young children because of their still developing bodies, there are numerous psychological complications that arise from replacing devices with the human interaction that is necessary for a child’s emotional development.
