In today’s society, electronics are what our lives are controlled by and based on. Without electronics, our lives would be at a standstill and nothing would get done fast enough. Almost everyone one owns some type of electronic in order to make their lives easier, regardless of the negative affects it can have on society. With all the positive and negative uses of electronics, the younger generation still needs to be monitored on how they use these electronics. Parents should supervise their children’s use of electronics and know what they are doing on these high tech gadgets. Parents staying focused on monitoring their children will allow children to stay more social, less violent and stay more active in today’s society.

Children who play video games all day long end up developing their own fantasy world and never wanting to leave.

Violence is everywhere in the world today....
