Parents are always worried about their kids when they excessively use Smartphones, it’s not about nagging, but caring.
In today’s world, when everything is in reach, it becomes very easy for the kids to search anything they want. Usually, kids (6 Years old to 12 years old) ask for their Parents’ smartphone just to play games on it and kids aged 13 and onwards, ask for their own smartphone. I don’t disagree with the idea that the children shouldn’t have smartphone, even i endorse the idea of having kids having their own smartphone.
The problem occurs when a kid is not making productive use of that particular smartphone, such as, Texting, always on Facebook, playing games all the time and talking all night and stuff, just to pass their time. For more info, most of the teenagers are engaged in sending pictures to each other, friends and boyfriends/girlfriends, and some part of those pictures contains Nude pictures too! which is somehow spoiling their minds as well as leaving adverse effects on their future lives. It’s their age of learning, not showing their parts to someone who is just there due to hormonal change.
As i endorsed the idea which suggests children having their own smartphones, so I came up with these 5 Apps which can make your kid learn a lot of great stuff from it rather than chatting or playing games on it. I tried these apps myself too, and i got hooked to all of them! These are some apps that every parent should introduce them to their kids, to make them learn something new in this competitive world.
These are the apps i chose for the kids (6 Years old and onwards);
