It might seem like a lot of your friends have suddenly had to have glasses. That’s probably because they use electronics too much and their eyes have become permanently near sighted. Do you spend hours on your cell phone when you should be doing Homework? Do you spend hours on your kindle when a friend is over? Many kids spend a lot of time on their electronic devices in their free (sometimes not free) time. Over time, E-Books have been overpowering books, Emails have been overpowering handwritten letters, and chromebooks have been overpowering pencils and paper. Some of these choices are pretty reasonable (like the kindle), but some of these choices are do not make sense at all (like computer games over board games). Eventually, people could forget how to communicate with words and start texting all the time. People could forget the importance and value of grammar. A study done by ABC News shows that kids use up 2.5 hours of music, almost 5 hours of TV and Movies, 3 hours of Internet and Social Media, and just 38 minutes of old fashioned reading each day.That adds up to 75 hours of electronics each week, and that doesn’t include the hour and a half of text messaging and half hour kids talk on the cell phone. There are about 160 hours in a week. People need to open their eyes and take a look at the world around them. Start to use your phone for phone calls and entertainment only. Turn down social media when you can. There are many ways to protect your eyes, language and even brain from the downsides of advanced technology.
