I agree with the viewpoint of one of my peers that we should make the best and beneficial use of technology and stay healthy. We as parents introduce our kids to the mobile technology at a very early age in the form of education and entertainment, but at the same time, we should not lose sight of the severe repercussions the uncontrolled use of technology and Internet will have later in their lives. We often focus more on the benefits of technology. I think there should be more awareness even amongst parents on getting educated about the harmful effects of it and how to handle it safely. As parents, we have the responsibility that our kids imbibe the best moral and ethical values as well which would result in proper conduct overall in their lives later on when they grow up and enter the real world on their own.
