Technology is created and developed with the aim of facilitating human life. But what if humans themselves are too dependent on them, or even addicted? Surely an undesirable thing will surely happen.

From Liputan6, Indonesia - Technology must be recognized like a double-edged knife. On the one hand can help human life, but on the other side of course has a negative impact. One that is exposed to the negative impact of technology is children. According to author Wimpy Kid, Jeff Kinney, technology has made it difficult for children to socialize.

According to him, the relationship of children with technology is extraordinary. However, the condition has fundamentally changed the way children communicate. "When I'm in the car with the kids, they spend more time on smartphones, it's awkward to drive with people who always play smartphones," he said as quoted by Telegraph on Wednesday, November 15, 2017.

As a parent, Kinney says she wants her children to socialize properly and communicate with others. But it is now rarely done.

"I think (communication with others) is gone, not just a little, and I think we as parents get involved in this, that's what I have in mind all the time," he said. He also mentions the technology has been very attached to the lives of children today. Therefore, it is very difficult for him to tell the story of children without mentioning mobile or SMS.

A number of studies are many who have reviewed the impact of the use of technology, especially smart devices to children. One of them is a study from San Diego State University, USA.

According to San Diego State University psychology professor Jean M. Twenge, iGen is more prone to mental disorders. iGen is a group of children born in 1995 to 2012 and assumed never to get out of the internet. When compared to millennial generation, iGen tends to be depressed and desirous of suicide. Another negative effect is the child becomes less polite, even expel parents when fun to play smart devices.

"It is no exaggeration to say that iGen is on the verge of the worst mental crisis in recent years," she said.

However, the play child's play (smart device) is still the surface stage. That is, this can be prevented by limiting the time of use, so children are not too late in using smart devices.
