Xiaomi: Mobile phones are integral to our lives. We look at phones and tablets to read the news, watch films, play games and do more. For us, mobile phones are an extension of our personalities. According to Explodingtopics.com. we spend more than 3 hours peering at our phones. Another report by Headphones Addict says kids between 8-10 years spend up to 4 hours on their tablets and phones.
This is bad news for all the parents, according to Jain, who headed Xiaomi India for many years and launched many brands into the market.
Phones are detrimental to mental health
In a recent LinkedIn post, Manu Jain has highlighted the ill effects of tablets and smartphones on young children. Quoting a Sapien Labs report, Jain says prolonged exposure of kids to phones leads to mental disorders and other issues when they become young adults.
According to this report, 60-70% of women who were exposed to phones when they were under 10, have experienced various mental disorders. The percentage ranges between 40-50% in the case of males.
Parents must be more responsible
Jain continues his post by appealing to the parents to be more responsible towards their kids. Parents should resist the temptation to hand over phones to their crying children to mollify them. Furthermore, parents should spend more time with their kids so that the latter grow up as responsible adults. Manu Jain says, ‘Develop other hobbies like gardening in your children’.
