Obsessed with internet

Postby Yozshusida В» 01.03.2020


Children have become such screen addicts they are abandoning their friends and hobbies, a major report warns today. Researchers found under-fives spend an hour and 16 minutes a day online. Their screen time rises to four hours and 16 minutes when gaming and television are included. Youngsters aged 12 to 15 average nearly three hours a day on the web — plus two more hours watching TV. The major Ofcom study comes as analysis shows iPads can stunt children's development.

Nearly 20 per cent of under-fives have a tablet , rising to half of older children stock image. Campaigners described the report from media watchdog Ofcom as frightening. There is the screen time itself, and then there is what the screen time is displacing. The annual report, which was based on 2, interviews, also revealed that:. Children aged three and four still watch more television than online videos, but their TV consumption is shrinking whilst their time online is rocketing.

Many flock to YouTube and spend hours watching child-friendly videos such as how to make slime or draw animals. Some youngsters are becoming so obsessed with YouTube celebrities that they idolise them as role models, the Ofcom report said. Some upload videos of their own, hoping to make a career for themselves.

Many new parents consider the opportunity to hand their children an iPad or tablet to play with to be a godsend - but figures show more youngster are turning away from old hobbies. Ofcom spoke to a number of children who had given up their hobbies — such as drawing and doing scooter stunts — in order to watch films on YouTube. But many children who go online to watch harmless videos find themselves watching deeply disturbing material. Often they come across unsuitable content by accident, when they are searching for something else.

Sometimes they simply seek out material they are too young to view. Only one per cent of under-5s have a smartphone but by 11 that has grown to 35 per cent. Many of the parents involved in the research were shocked to learn what their children had been watching.

Two fifths of those with children aged five to 15 feared that their children were being pressured to spend money on the web. Half worried about tech firms harvesting too much information about their children, and around a third feared their offspring would see unsuitable content or become radicalised by extremists.

Letting pre-school children play on iPads and watch lots of television harms their development, researchers have found. They said those who were exposed to the most screen time at the age of two showed poorer general skills by the age of three. Despite these fears, many parents of teens admitted that they struggle to control the amount of time their children spent online. Part of the problem was that youngsters prefer to watch content on the web on their own, according to the report.

They view watching live TV as a family activity, but feel far more comfortable on a device which they can control in private. Children often use multiple screens at once — but the hours they spend on each are counted separately for the Ofcom research. The number of those aged 12 to 15 being bullied online nearly doubled from 5 per cent in to 9 per cent last year. The watchdog found children increasingly faced bullying through services such as WhatsApp.

Last week the father of year-old Molly Russell blamed Instagram for her death, after she viewed posts on the social network that glamourised suicide and self-harm.

The Google-owned YouTube platform has also come under fire for allowing jihadists, far-Right activists and hate preachers. Argos AO. Share this article Share.
