In this era of digital revolution, smartphones are available to everyone. Though most schools prohibit the use of a phone during classes, we see students using them all the time. When students are so addicted to their smartphones, the future looks scary.
A 2018 survey by the National Academy for Educational Management revealed how social media use has rapidly grown. Around 29.5 percent of students are addicted to using social media during their school hours. Some are even becoming addicted to watching pornography which changes their habits and way of thinking.
It is high time people realise this major problem and come up with possible measures to stop children from excessive use of the internet.
