This article is about the negative effects of computers to children at a very young age. It explains the bad effects of using computers to their physical and mental health.

The Negative Effects of Computers to Children

Today's generation of Science and Information Technology it is an advantage for every individual to have fundamental skills and knowledge on how to use the computer and the Internet. Computers have benefited the world because of machines and other electronic devices invented. It is the greatest thing invented by human. However, debates from the computer critics around the world have brought doubts about the benefits of computer especially to those children who are using it every day. Some said that there are more negative effects of computers on children than positive. The negative effects of computers are usually caused by the parents who are not well supervising their children in using the computer.

Negative Effects of Computers

There is no doubt that children could obtain the negative effects of using computer if he always face the computer monitor or screen everyday because of the radiation that comes from the monitor and directly hitting towards the eyes of a young child. This is really proven that it could cause some health problems.

Nowadays, at early ages most children use computers as modern educational and entertainment equipments for their daily life. These computer habits cause most of the children to have a lack of outdoor activities and other physical exercises to stay healthy. They prefer to sit and watch in front of the monitor the whole day. Children at young ages should have enough time to have an outside relaxation, breathe healthy and fresh air, walking together with some pets under the light of the sun in the morning, and doing some exercises in the night to avoid the negative effects of computers. Those are not the usual practice of children today because of the existence of computer. Computers take much of their time in doing those outside activities. The negative effects of computers have a definite mental development and health problems.

The main reason for the children using the computers is for educational purpose in a different and comprehensive way. However, when the child appreciated the concept of online or offline games this will really put him to health and mental risks because of the negative effects of computers. It will also cause to make them hard to do the other things to do like doing their assignments, projects, and especially eating their meals. There for, their time that is intended for studying their lessons and doing their school works could be replaced by clicks of the mouse and strikes on the keyboard. The negative effects of computers will possibly become even worst when there is no proper supervision of parents to the activities of their children. When the children are attracted to the world of entertainment and games of virtual world, that will be the time that he will be missing his classes, truant playing, incomplete school assignments, and others.

I am happy to read that people are now paying attention to the health hazards of computer use.
I am also very happy because it seems that all of the above comments were written by people who speak another language before english, exept the rude one... he is certainly American.
The quality of people from the 'Eastern' part of the world is easy to see when compaired with the 'relaxing' minds of American students in general. You are inspirations for those who try to go above the rest. Thank you, and I Thank God, too.
