, that they often spend far too much time on them, and not enough them doing more traditional activities.
Spending too much time behind the computer can also be harmful to children. Children lead a much more sedentary lifestyle than in previous generations, and in part this is due to computers. Child obesity is at an all time high. Children spend too much time in front of a computer screen, and is harmful to the development of their eyesight. One of the possible problems that can arise due to intensive staring into the screen is sight deterioration.
Unrestricted access to the Internet can be very detrimental to the mental and even physical development of children. Children can come across dangerous people on the Internet, spend time idly on chat sites, downloading music and playing games etc, is more often than not of little educational value to a child, and if a lot of his or her free time is devoted to such activities, he or she is deprived of the necessary stimulus to develop mentally.
