I agree with the following statement. My reason for supporting the statement is the fact that I have a little niece and she was given her first electronic device at the age of 5, and ever since she has not been able to get off of it, and every time you are to take it away from her she acts as if she will die without it.

From experience with 3 younger siblings this statement is very agreeable. I notice that they always want to be on the phone and once they're time is up they want more and more time.

When they are given access to technology to young and it is used as a babysitter. Kids should use technology as a learning tool and entertainment but their parents need to monitor their use and even get involved with them.

I believe children should not be allowed to have phones at age of 10 and under because it can hinder there learning habit.

I believe children can get to attached to cellular devices. They should have more times reading books and less time on their phones or tablets.

I believe that young children can become highly addicted to technology. When my brother got his first phone, he was six, but now he is addicted to his phone at the age of twenty.

I believe kids can get addicted to devices. All my life, I've been addicted to games. I have a problem!

Smartphones and tablets can take a kid anywhere with just a click. It offers infinite possibilities for doing something new every time, and this characteristic of handheld devices can cause addiction in kids.

in all my life I had seen it reach to kids, my parents, and my sister, to know the fact that addiction is an epidemic that we all have. I for one have this addiction myself that held me prisoner to my past actions but seeing this happen to children in another negative way really derails the whole situation. The people around me use it as a way for social status by the toiling media that post dumb things to make children follow that same dumb stuff just because of how cool it looks. And if you had a different life away from phones like i had, it made me smarter in some way but the people around you shun you for your own action. to answer the question at hand i strongly agree with the fact that people can be sucked in the clout, bigot, spoiled-brat, making device.

Children are more likely to become addicted to electronic devices at a young age. They are growing in a new society where we can’t go anywhere without our phone or any other electronic device. It’s a demand to use these devices now. Children will advance with technology as well as having risks of being addicted to it. In conclusion i agree that giving a phone or tablet to a child 10 or younger is a risk of addiction.

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 think that everyone having a cell phone in their pockets or hands at all times is just the first step to human and robot symbiosis. Our cell phones can and are an etension of our minds. If you need to know something random, you can just pull your phone out and look it up. What if we could do this but with a device implanted into our minds? You might say, "oh we wont have that for many, many years". Check out Elon Musk and his company neurolink... it's closer than you think... maybe its in your pocket...

I agree, my brother is addicted to his games and tablet to the point he barely wants to go outside or do anything when he is on the them. He got them as young age and I feel like it makes kids less respectful when they are on them all the time
