In the article, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?” by Isabella, I was able to learn that due to a lot of screen exposure amongst young children it can cause many bad behaviors and habits. Children are becoming more antisocial due to these screens that are always in front of them, they would rather not face reality and stay stuck on a screen. Throughout these past years technology has developed even more, parents get their children electronic devices simply so they can be distracted or not bother them. I think parents should limit the amount of screen time their children have because it affects their social skills more than anything. Children don’t like interacting with other children because they are more focused on a screen rather than making some sort of connection. I understand that sometimes its okay to let your child have some screen time but parents should know when it’s too much. 

Do you think children should have any type of electronic device growing up ?
