Psychological harm of social media to children

According to the study conducted by AVG company in 2010, 90% of children born in the USA take part in social media before they reach their age. This happens when families like to announce the details of their children to others and share them on social media and various channels as soon as they are born.

Social media is a space where people freely share their feelings and thoughts, good and bad moments. Today, social media such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook are used to get to know and understand people better.

As for the reason why parents constantly share their children on social media, they do so only because of a sense of pride and a need for validation.

Especially mothers’ devotion to their children, their upbringing styles, behaviors, attitudes and everything from infancy to the school they send their children to are criticized by other people. Mothers who are aware of this move forward more carefully and by calculating every step while raising their children. This progress creates a desire to be approved by others over time, and it is inevitable that mothers want to reflect every moment of their children on social media in this process.

Families become pawns in the race to be the right parent through social media accounts opened to babies who are not yet born. Families are happy with the approval they receive from their surroundings by sharing the goods, toys, and places they take them for their children on social media, and this happiness ends by sharing the various states of the children.

It affects children’s psychology

Today, children begin to spend time with tablets, phones and computers before they are one year old. This situation, which blunts their cognitive abilities, limits their social skills, and impairs their health, becomes even more dangerous as their families become addicted to social media. When they reach a certain age, instead of playing games in the park with their peers, they become individuals who use their phones like older people, stay away from social circles because of these habits, and experience health problems.

In addition to all these, it is stated that children whose photos have been shared every day throughout their lives face serious psychological problems.

Thinking that he can get everything he wants, learning from his family that his life is only well-dressed, having lots of things and money, the child strives to behave like his family when he grows up, to live a fake life. However, in cases where the life they live in is not a happy life as it reflects on the outside, people may face depression.
