10 reasons why children should not use portable electronics before 12 years old

10 reasons why children should not use portable electronics before 12 years old

The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Pediatric Society state that babies 0 a 2 years should not have any contact with this technology, of 3 a 5 years being restricted to one hour per day, and 6 a 18 years 2 hours per day. Según cris rowan, pediatric occupational therapist, biologist and writer "children and young people use 4-5 Sometimes these devices more than the recommended amount, with serious consequences and often threaten their health and life.

Studies kaiser foundation and "active healthy kids", Canada, warns that portable devices (cellphones, Tablets, Arcade ) have dramatically increased access, use and abuse of digital technologies, especially for very young children. "As a pediatric therapist, I am asking parents, teachers and governments to ban the use of all handheld devices to children under 12 años” –dice rowan.

• The following are 10 reasons based on scientific studies to ask this prohibition. Visit zonein.ca to see the data sheet for zone'in studies referred.

1. The rapid growth of the brain. Between 0 and 2 years old, brains triple in size in children, and continue in a state of rapid development to 21 age. The early development of the brain is determined by environmental stimuli, or lack thereof. Stimulation of brain development caused by excessive exposure to technologies (cellphones , internet, ipads , TV), has been shown to be associated with executive function, and attention deficit simultaneously, cognitive delays, learning disabilities, increased impulsivity, and reduced ability to self-regulate, for example, rabietas.

2. Failure to thrive. The use of these technologies restricts movement, which can result in developmental delay. One in three children now entering school with developmental delays, negatively affecting literacy and learning performance. The movement of children, in return, improves attention and learning ability. The use of technology in the age of 12 years is detrimental to children's development and learning, according to studies cited by specialists rowan on your website.

3. Obesity Epidemic. Tv and video games are correlated with the increase in obesity. Children who are allowed devices in their bedrooms have 30 % higher incidence of obesity. One in four Canadians and one in three American children are obese. The 30 % of children with obesity develop diabetes, and obese people have a higher risk of stroke and heart attack early, which shortens life expectancy. "Largely due to obesity, twenty-first century children may be the first generation of which many will not survive their parents ", advirtió el profesor andrew prentice.

4. Sleep disorders. The 60 % parent does not monitor the use of technology for children, and 75 % of losniños technology are allowed in their rooms. The 75 % Children 9 and 10 years are sleep deprived to the extent that their ratings are affected negatively, according to studies of college in boston 2012.

5. Mental conditions. Excessive use of digital technology is implicated as a causal factor in the increasing rates of childhood depression, anxiety, Linking disorders, attention deficit, autism, trastorno bipolar, psychosis and problematic child behavior. One in six Canadian children have a diagnosed mental illness and psychotropic medication undergoing risky, according to Dr.. Waddell.

6. Aggression. Violent media content can cause childhood aggression. Young children are increasingly exposed to the increasing incidence of physical and sexual violence in the media today. TV shows depicting sexually explicit, murders, violations, torture and mutilation. In the us. Ranked media violence as a public health risk due to a causal impact on children's aggression, Huesmann as studies in 2007, cita rowan.

7. Digital Dementia. Contents of the media high speed may contribute to attention deficit, and decreased concentration and memory , due to the pruning of neural tracks brain frontal cortex, according to studies by Christakis 2004 and small 2008 . Children who can not keep the attention can not learn.

8. Addictions. Parents increasingly attributed to technology, isolation of their children. Meanwhile in the absence of parental attachment, Children join the devices, which can result in addiction. One in 11 children 8-18 years are addicted to technology.

9. Emission of radiation and cancer. And in 2011, World Health Organization classified cellphones (and other wireless devices) as a risk category 2b (possible carcinogen), due to the emission of radiation (oms 2011). James mcnamee, de “health canada”, October 2011 issued a cautionary warning indicating: “the most sensitive to a variety of agents niñosson than adults because their brains and immune systems are still developing, so you can not say that the risk would be equal to an adult for a child”. In December 2013 el dr. Anthony Miller College School of Public Health recommended toronto, based on recent research, that exposure to radio signals should be reclassified as 2a (probable carcinogen), as in 2b (possible carcinogen). The American Academy of Pediatrics requested a review of emf radiation emissions from digital devices, citing three reasons relating to the impact on children.

10. Untenable. The ways in which children are raised and educated with the technology are no longer sustainable, says rowan. "Children are our future, but there is a future for children who abuse technology ". A team approach is urgently needed in order to reduce the use of the technology for children.
