Children are growing up in an age with technology. This means that they always have electronics at their disposal. Here are some reasons why those handheld electronics should be kept away from kids according to pediatric therapist Cris Rowan:

1. When a child is over-stimulated by electronics at a very young age their brain develops more rapidly than it should. This can cause cognitive disorders such as attention deficit disorder.

2. Kids who are more interested in electronics are less interested in going outside and playing sports or moving around. This can lead to obesity both in childhood and in their adult lives.

3. Since handheld electronics do not require a lot of movement on the child’s part they may end up having motor skill development delays. They are not using their muscles as they are supposed to and their body isn’t able to develop like it should.

4. There are many different video games out there that are violent in nature. This can cause children to become overly aggressive when they are not playing the game as they are trying to mimic what they see.
