interactive media produce the similar brain pulses as drugs among
young formative teens. Consequently, the drug use has declined with
the increased use of smart phones among children in teens.
left to themselves, with the use of marketed interactive media and
games, children will be out to buy new games for smart phones and
gaming industry will thrive resulting in the same kinds of criminal
activities as the drug mafia. This needs to be regulated or else

becoming addict the smart-phone interactive media providing cheap
kicks of the mind," said social psychologists Dr Anita Srivastava
while reacting on the news.
we need to enhance face-to-face educational activities and group work
in the classroom to provide ever strong psychological foundation to
the elementary education and stop the use of the computers and smart

smart phones to little children as play and pacifier items should be
stopped by the parents, I feel.
