The biggest problem with Generation Z children is that they are constantly interested in technological materials. Especially from the age of 1, children start to take care of the phone and their movements adapt quickly to technology. They can quickly grasp any technological tool without going through any orientation process. As a result, children spend a lot of time with phones, computers, tablets, and this situation is becoming increasingly dangerous.

We give our children our mobile phones, sometimes to easily eat, sometimes to leave us alone, and leave them alone with this terrible world, thinking that we are comfortable. So don’t you just sit back and wonder what your child is doing on your phone?

Today, it takes only seconds to reach anything harmful (pornography, social violence, slang, profanity, violence, etc.) from the phone.
