Excessive Use of Mobile Phones in Children

Excessive Use of Mobile Phones in Children

The most advanced and effective communication device in this century is mobile phone. Mobile phone is not only being used by the corporate or highly qualified professional. People from all type of social group have mobile phone in their hands now. Usage of the mobile phone is not increased only with all social groups but also with people of all age groups. Children are the more noticeable group as they are using cell phones of all types. A recent research study shows that children are really capable of using any advanced type of mobile phones even without any proper guidance. Though mobile phones are the effective mode of communication, it is a well known fact that it also has adverse side effects if being over used. The mobile phones emit shockwave radioactive radiations that affect the body in various manners.

Adverse effects of mobile phone usage:

Today's children are growing up in a radio-frequency environment that never existed in human history before. The radiation emitted by mobile phones and mobile phone masts can have adverse effects on children. Some include:

  1. Affects your Immunity Status: cell phones after a full day usage contains many germs on their display which are highly numbered than your toilet seats. These germs are easily transferred to your body as you touch frequently or use close to your face for talking. This increases the risk of exposure to the germs and reduces your immune strength as immune status are not fully developed for children.
  2. Increase Risk of Chronic Pains: prolonged use of mobile phones for playing games or texting requires continuous movement for your hands which may develop chronic pain in joints of your shoulders and hands.
  3. Vision Problem: children when concentrate much on playing games in mobile phone they even fail to blink frequently with the increased interest and attraction towards the game. This causes the dryness of the conjunctiva and also increases the ocular tension.
  4. Affects your emotions negatively and increases the stress level

Mobile Phone Safety For Kids:

As a parent, you must take preventive measures to minimize your child's exposure to the harmful effects of mobile phones. These include:

  • Do not give cell phone if your child is under 16 years. A child's brain is too sensitive to withstand the effects of mobile radiation.
  • Do not let your child hold a mobile phone directly up to his head. Use an air-tube headset instead.
  • Do not let your child make calls in buses, trains, cars, and elevators. The mobile phone works harder to get the signal out through the metal, which increases the power level.
  • Do not let your child use cell phone when the signal is weak. It will increase the power to the maximum, as the phone attempts to connect to a new relay antenna.
  • Limit the use of cell phone around children.
  • Make sure that there is no mobile phone mast or network tower near your home or your kid's school.
  • Do not let children take mobile phones to school.
  • Do not leave mobile phones in your children's bedroom at night.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi my child is 10 months old and he is not eating anything. Nor drinking milk. He is just picking up the rubbish from the ground and eating. What should I do now. Can you recommend any tonic. Should I go for it.

hi don't worry, it's part of child's motor skill development. You can take a small sheet of food grade plastic , wash it with some mild dishwasher liquid. now you can spread the eatable over it so that he can play and eat. Along that, take the food in another bowl too, involve him in talk and offer this food in between . If he spits, don't give any reaction. Just be continue with your talks and offer again after a minute or so. In a month or so, when he will be expert in that skill of picking up things, he will leave that habit too. And to improve the food intake, offer him food in every 2 hours. Try to make one sweet and salty food every time . Offer him both and fill his stomach which he likes the most. Along this, you can gave him "Arvindasava" twice a day. it's natural and herbal tonic for kids to improve hunger.

This chewing movement is normal in babies of this age and no need to worry . Crying can be due to hunger , wet napkins or lack of fondling and loneliness

Investigate to know cause, cbc, hb, cxr, mt. Look for any local pathology if any, improve personal hygeine. Check weight for the age, if low improve diet. Balaced diet+play+hygeine will ensure good health.

My son is 2 yrs old . He is having my feed till now . Now i want him to feed not any more bt my breast are full of milk and if i dont feed him i feel sever pain in my breasts . Wt should i do ?

Pediatrician, Mumbai
You should stop breastfeeding him and put him on cows milk along with regular diet for age . You will continue to produce breast milk since you have been breast feeding him , hence the pain if you dont express the milk . You can take bromocriptine 2.5mg twice daily for 15 days to suppress milk production . You may take paracetamol 1 tab if pain is severe and also apply hot fomentation to breast . However , bromocriptine causes nausea , so you may need to take some anti acids like Pan 40. 1 tab for 10 days to counter that.

Lower abdominal pain in children even in the right lower quadrant does not necessarily mean appendicitis. Common causes of such pain are tonsilitis, roundworm infestation and constipation and rare cause is vasculitis (Henoch Schonlein Purpura) where there are also rashes all over the body with itching. So you should consult a Pediatric Surgeon before anyone else. Probably your kid will not need surgery!

What all can I give to my 7 month old other than breast feed? can you please give me a schedule?

Pediatrician, Pune
Can continue with breast feeds till 18 months of age, additionally can start with rice water, light moving dal, smashed boiled vegetables, seedless fruits bannana, introduce new food items every 15 days to a month.

You may continue iron and cal as suggested by your doctor. But I suggest to add complementary food to baby in addition to breast milk as he is now 6 months old.
