If kids used their phones/tablets etc less and read more there would be less illiteracy in Australia for a start.
Bullying would be less without these apps too. Parents need to step up and start taking responsibility for their kids. I was bullied as a young teen and my mother was proactive in stopping it. Kids are so wrapped in cotton wool these days that when something nasty is said to them they immediately think they need to do something drastic to stop it. It’s devastating to hear the amount of suicides in young people because they haven’t been taught to stand up for themselves or understand that standing strong and ignoring comments made by their peers.
Get rid of excessive apps and technology usage and get kids connecting with each other again!
