I can agree, because my little brothers already have tablets and games and as soon as you take them away they get mad and mean like they can't live without it

I agree, my little niece is only three and she already gets mad when you take the phone or tablet away from her.

I think kids can get addicted to their phones. I'm sure that it will weaken their attention span. Phones are nice, but they shouldnt be on it all the time.

Children do not tend to be addicted to technology prior to the subject, in fact, technology has been proven to increase mental activity and stimulate brain growth within the proper usage of said items, learning technological devices have gone from everything into V-smile and leapfrog, both learning tech with brand staples such as scooby-doo to help the learning process of young children.

My thoughts are that children become addicted to the phone at a young age. I can say that children do not need to to be given a smartphone because when they're on the phone their attitude changes and they don't want the phone taken from them, they just want to be all day on the phone.

yes i believe kids get addicted to technology at a young age but it may seem like a burden. But also it may be a blessing, for they are the future of technology.

Many of you have mentioned having younger brothers and sisters who are already addicted to technology. What about yourselves? Do you remember when you first got your first device? Did it change anything in you? Maybe ask the people around you if they noticed a change in your behavior.

I do believe that younger children's get too addicted to phones. Once you put one in their hands they won't want anything but the phone. I don't think is bad but i also do think is bad. one because it helps them learn and other it's because their vision can get damaged.

I didn't get my first phone till I was 10 and now I am addicted to it. Kids are getting phones when they are 5 and 6. By the time they get to 16 they will be obsessed.

So what can we do to protect our little brothers and sisters? We live in an ever connected world, and it isn't going anywhere. What is the answer to balancing this new technology and living a normal childhood?

I agree, because technology is constantly changing and adapting, the when we're young, we're taught the things we're shown. When young kids have their hands on a phone or tablet, they're distracted from what's around them and it distracts them from learning anything new to use when they're much older.

I think children are more likely to become addicted because they will already have experience. Also having one at so young you could lose discipline from your parents.
