Childhood drowned in the swirl of electrical gadgets...

It is true that, from many perspectives, various electronic devices, including cell phones, have transformed life on a qualitative level. However, in the recent past, there have been numerous reports about children using social media, which not only gives people the chills but also disturbs society as a whole. It compels people to consider what will happen to our society and where it will go if it drifts from ideals, traditions, family values, and social norms. When children's fascination with using mobile phones turned into murderous and suicidal tendencies, it was unclear when this obsession started. Numerous social media platforms and gaming applications persistently exploit children's addiction, obstinacy, fixation, and hypnotism.

Children's lives are beginning to suffer from the pain of being separated from reality by the illusion of a reel. Children who often check statistics and keep up with various media develop an unusual restlessness that eventually damages their mental health and completely alters their personality. Youngsters become enmeshed in a vortex from which they are unable to escape because they are unable to distinguish between the virtual and physical worlds.

When someone becomes dependent on something for their mental and emotional requirements, they are said to be addicted to it, and this is what is happening to youngsters who use electronic devices. Over time, this addiction affects everyone, from the individual to the family and society, and is more harmful than any other addiction. The reason behind the physical and mental decline caused by prolonged usage of devices throughout childhood or adolescence might be attributed to the hormone melatonin being released into the environment. Melatonin regulates our circadian rhythm. Melatonin induces drowsiness. However, since its leak has halted, we stay up late. Additionally, the likelihood of mental stressors like worry and sadness rises when you don't get enough sleep.
