TRENDING – ARE OUR CHILDREN SLAVES TO SOCIAL MEDIA?
With the advent of smart phones, technology & social media are becoming ever present in our children’s lives
but is this having a damaging affect on our children’s self esteem and ability to socialise and make friends?
Accuracy took to the streets to get the views of the Irish people.
Here are some of the insights we uncovered
- 89% of Irish adults believe that Irish children spend too much time on electronic gadgets and not enough time being active
- While 86% of Irish adults believe that Irish children spend too much time on social media and not enough time engaging face to face with friends
So the findings are unequivocal despite the benefits of technology, Irish people are concerned that children under 18 years are spending too much time on handsets and not enough time being active and meeting up with friends face to face.
So although technology can be our friend we must be mindful that we remain its master lest we will become its slave.
