Have kids of today lost the innocence?? A question discussed by group of doctors in their monthly meet made me think a lot!!! My point of view for this question was bit clumpsy and ambiguous, what I feel is kids of today probably born after 2006 or say 2007, haven’t lost their innocence but have matured way earlier. They have become more aggressive, violent, impatient etc. I am not taking out negative aspects but these are few qualities randomly found in the upcoming generation (though I don’t fall in an elderly generation but lucky to be kid of 90’s).
Reasons for losing their innocence and maturing earlier is probably extra information…extra exposure to knowledge!! You might be like, Hey Aisha, how can knowledge be harmful?? But to face the fact excess of anything can be harmful, everything in life has its appropriate timing and if and only if this principle is followed then things fall rightly in right place.
So what is going wrong nowadays??
The excess use of “Smart Technology” to make the generation smarter!!! Let kids enjoy their childhood, let them collect memories of falling on sand, crying for chocolates, secretly planning against elder brother/sister, playing in mud, littering the house with craft papers then simply giving them a phone or tablet and downloading games. The games played in open air will teach them practical situations. No doubt there might be some benefits of this newly trending “Smart Technology” but it for sure has more drawbacks!!!
Getting back to why I had an clumsy answer to the newly arising question was – Though kids are getting hampered the reason for their untimely maturity is the ones who say we care for our children more then our ownselves “the parents”. Accept it or not, this is a fact that no child was born with an tablet or phone or laptops, this was all taught by parents, sometimes in excitement and sometimes just to make the child busy in some other thing because parents have got some office work or and household get together.
Its time for parents to realize that rather then making extra talented robots for future we need a little extra humanity in humans. We need to teach, the future of tomorrow is not just technology and progress, its something that makes you feel satisfied.
Well the topic can be extended as long as possible!! But can I get your views on this topic as vast as ocean??
