I feel as if children are more likely to get addicted to the internet because there endless amounts of entertainment;There is also tons and tons of valuable information that would be good for a child to learn at such a young age.The parents should put a parental lock on certain websites so that there entertainment but not corruption.

I agree that children will become addicted to technology before the age of 10 because their minds are still growing and processing a lot of information and with a tablet being placed in their hands, They will grow up thinking that's the only device they can enjoy themselves with.

I like this statement. Their minds ARE still developing! This is a link from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

I agree, many children under the age of ten are more susceptible to becoming addicted to mobile devices. At this age children form bonds with things that they can find comfort in. Some kids have imaginary friends, favorite toys, and favorite blankets. With phones and other mobile devices there is this instant gratification we get since a phone can give us what we want instantaneously. This creates a habit of impatient behavior. This can explain why children get mad when the wifi goes down or their phone gets taken away. And this kind of behavior is easier to pick up and develop when a child is at such a young age.

I believe children's can get addicted on cellular devices. I have a 7yr old brother that can prove it. He's entertainment mostly relies on my moms phone. His mood changes once we tell him it's enough. It's a habit he gets when his mind is so young and later it could only get worse.

I think if you jut leave them with the device yes but if you also encourage other activities with it like sports then they should be just fine.

I can agree because I was not allowed to have electronic devices until I was able to drive. Even though i enjoy spending my free time on my phone or computer, I am not addicted the same way my nephew is. My nephew screams and cries when videos are not being played on a phone or a tablet and he needs it to fall asleep.

This is understandable, as I see my cousins grow up with electronics like phones they seem to become addicted to it and not wanting to let go of there them. As it stands for me I don't see myself really addicted to my phone or game console

The overwhelming response is that we see the damage this causes. What about the other side? Does anyone feel that children need their own device at an early age? If so, what are your thoughts? Let's explore the flip side of this coin!

yes, because if a child is introduced to something so addictive at such a young age they will always go to it when they don't know anything else to do, me myself i used to always play video games at a young age and was addicted to it because of such the young age i was introduced.

Yes I do agree with this statement, My younger sister is always on her game console or phone. This is due by, probably being introduced to such things at a young age. I have a similar problem but not as bad, I need to not use my phone as much as I do, and I also need to stop playing video games as much as I do.
