 She told that initially she used to give a call to Sonam for a long time, but when she saw that Sonam is not eating food without a phone.

 So he gradually reduced his screen time. She tries to get Sonam to spend more time in the playground than the screen. 

They say that in today's time children cannot be kept completely away from mobile phones.

      πŸ’   Doctors also believe the WHO guidelines

Dr. Sameer Malhotra, director of Mental Hospital's Mental Health and Behavioral Science Department,


says that dialogue is very important for children's mental and physical development. 

Children under 5 years of age do not develop cognitive skills. This means that children cannot differentiate between right and wrong.

They learn what they see. It has been seen many times that children try to speak like a cartoon.

Many parents also come with the complaint that children are becoming very aggressive. 

Often the parents sit in front of the TV to feed the children or they put something in the phone. This is a very wrong practice.

In such a situation, the attention of the children gets disturbed and they eat more food than hunger.

 Imagination of children accelerates at this age. That's why people used to tell stories to children earlier.

But now instead of telling the stories to the parents, the children catch the phone.
